Know Your Caleg, a platform for overseas voters—including Indonesian students studying abroad—to learn about their legislative candidates

April 1, 2019

Foreign Policy Community of Indonesia (FPCI) launched a platform for overseas voters to learn more about their legislative candidates through Know Your Caleg (legislative candidate) program, which can be accessed through the website.

Through this website, voters can learn about the legislative candidates’ profiles including their track records, campaign promises and programs. In addition to their profiles, the website also features the candidates’ contact information, including their email addresses, personal websites, and WhatsApp numbers, as well as social media accounts. It also allows people to access videos of candidates answering questions about diaspora issues, including dual citizenship and the protection of migrant workers.

So far, the website features 34 candidates out of 105 candidates competing for seven House of Representatives seats in the Jakarta 2 electoral districts, which cover Central and South Jakarta, and overseas.
