TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – The Indonesian Economic and Trade Office to Taipei has urged Taiwanese to give their Indonesian employees time off on Sunday (April 14) so they can vote in the country’s general election.

The mid-April election is to choose the president and members of the country’s legislative branch, the People’s Consultative Assembly (MPR).

It is reportedly the first time in Indonesian history the country’s president, vice president, and MPR members will be elected on the same day.

More than 190 million Indonesians are eligible to vote. The figure includes overseas Indonesians, such as those who are working in Taiwan.    [FULL  STORY]
