Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Joko Widodo, popularly known as Jokowi, is likely to win the 2014 presidential election, according to a quick count conducted by state-owned Radio Republic Indonesia (RRI) in cooperation with Antara news agency here on Wednesday.

According to the quick count, which has gathered 82 percent of its data sample across Indonesia, presidential candidate Jokowi and his running mate Jusuf Kalla have received 52.45 percent of votes followed by Prabowo Subianto and his running mate Hatta Radjasa with 47.55 percent of votes.
