The Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) and the Islamic Defender Front (FPI) are organizing a large event on Thursday, February 21, called Munajat 212, to pray for successful presidential elections. Thousands of people are expected to attend the gathering on Thursday evening (local time) at Merdeka Square in central Jakarta. A heightened security presence, crowded conditions, and associated transportation disruptions, including road closures and traffic congestion, are expected in the vicinity of the event.
Indonesia is scheduled to hold presidential elections on April 17.
Individuals in Jakarta are advised to anticipate large crowds, a heightened security presence, transportation disruptions, including increased demand for taxis, traffic congestion, and road closures, and avoid all public demonstrations as a precaution.
