“I emphasize to you all, do not be afraid of going to polling stations. Do not be afraid of going to polling stations because our TNI and Polri will keep all the voters safe,” Jokowi remarked in his address to the "Unity in White Concert" (Konser Putih Bersatu) at the Gelora Bung Karno (GBK) Main Stadium, Jakarta, on Saturday.
Jokowi delivered a speech in front of his hundred thousand supporters who were mostly dressed in white during that concert, which was the final campaign rally prior to the 2019 elections.
“I ask you all to go to TPS on April 17, wearing white, but if you don’t have any white clothes, it is OK. I ask you to wear white because the ones that you will cast your ballot for are the candidates in white,” Jokowi added.
Besides, the incumbent presidential candidate also asked all the Indonesian people to unite for the sake of Indonesia's development.
“On April 17, Indonesians will vote to determine how Indonesia will be for the next five years. Therefore, you should cast your ballots for the ones who care and know exactly what Indonesian people need. You should vote for the one who came from the people and work for the people. You should vote for the ones who always put people’s interests first,” Jokowi said.
Furthermore, Jokowi also asked the supporters to persuade others to go to TPS on the election day.
“Let us ask our friends, and our neighbors to throng to TPS to vote. For the development of Indonesia, vote 01,” Jokowi said.
The concert that took place at the GBK Main Stadium, which has a maximum capacity of 160 thousands people, appeared fully occupied.
The concert started at 2 PM, and was performed by more than 500 celebrities, like Glenn Fredly, Ruth Sahanaya, Yuni Shara, Krisdayanti, Addie MS, Ashanty, Dira Sugandi, Teza Sumendra, Sophia Latjuba, Andien, Nirina Zubir, Bimbo, Slank, among others.
