‘Move to Antarctica’

Indonesian presidential challenger tells pollsters
AFP, Jakarta

Indonesia's presidential challenger yesterday slammed pollsters as untrustworthy and said they should move to Antarctica so they could "lie to the penguins", as he refused to concede defeat in this week's election.

Firebrand ex-general Prabowo Subianto has rejected a dozen so-called quick counts that say Indonesian president Joko Widodo was re-elected Wednesday by a comfortable margin. The counts, which are samples conducted by pollsters, have been reliable indicators in past elections. Official results are not due until next month.

Subianto -- pilloried online for his refusal to concede -- ratcheted up the rhetoric Friday, after claiming he was the Southeast Asian nation's new president.

"The people of Indonesia don't trust you," he thundered to around a thousand supporters outside his home in the capital Jakarta.
