JAKARTA (TheInsiderStories) – Good Morning! Today, Indonesia’ Constitutional Court will decide the claims of systematic fraud in the 2019 presidential election by Prabowo Subianto – Sandiaga Salahuddin Uno pair. The legal case has sought to disqualify Joko Widodo – Ma’ruf Amin or force a re-run of the vote in 12 provinces.

During hearings, the opposition’ lawyers claimed the incumbent’ win had been achieved through “systematic electoral fraud and abuse of power and 22 million votes were “stolen”.

Ahead of the decision, hundreds of Subianto’ supporters gathered near to the Constitutional Court office in Central Jakarta on Wednesday morning. The protester demanding that the justices deliver a “fair verdict” for a lawsuit filed.

The groups that will participate in the rally themed “Halalbihalal and Tahlil Akbar 266”, include the Gerakan Nasional Gerakan Nasional Pengawal Fatwa or National Movement to Safeguard Fatwas and the 212 Alumni. The rally has been coordinated by former Corruption Eradication Commission adviser Abdullah Hehamahua.

While, Amnesty International released an open letter to President Widodo, expressing “grave human rights violations allegedly committed by police” including “the use of torture by police” during Jakarta riots on June 21 -22.

Then, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the United States (US) and China were on a “path to complete” a trade deal. In an interview on CNBC, he was hopeful President Donald Trump’ upcoming meeting with Chinese leader Xi Jinping would kick-start stalled talks.
Trump and Xi will meet at the Group of 20 (G20) Summit in Osaka, Japan, this weekend — their first face-to-face since the G20 meeting in Argentina in late 2018, where they agreed to pursue a trade deal.
In his Twitter account, US president shouted “My Plan B with China is to take billions and billions a month…and we’ll do less business with them”. The US already has imposed 25 percent tariffs on US$200 billion of Chinese goods, and Trump has threatened to impose the same levy on other $300 billion of Chinese products.
Moreover, Indian premier Narendra Modi stated that the G20′ leaders will provide an important opportunity to reiterate and reinforce strong support to reformed multilateralism, which is crucial for preserving rule-based international order in today’ fast changing world. The Osaka Summit, he added, will also be an important stepping stone for India towards hosting the G20 Summit in 2022.

On the sidelines of the meeting, Modi will host the next Russia, India and China (RIC) Informal Summit, and he also to participate in the next informal meetings of BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) and JAI (Japan, America and India) leaders.

Yesterday, oil price rose to a four-week high after an industry report signaled a bigger-than-forecast drop in US crude stockpiles, adding impetus to a rally that’s been driven by a tense standoff between Washington and Tehran. Futures in New York gained as much as 2.3 percent.

The American Petroleum Institute reported that inventories fell by 7.55 million barrels last week. That would be the biggest decline in more than three months if confirmed by government figures due Wednesday.

On Wednesday, Indonesian Rupiah lowered to 14,218 over the Greenback from prior day closed at 14,125. This morning, the local currency open higher to 14,175 ahead the election dispute decision.

May you have a profitable day!
