Indonesian former general Prabowo Subianto has withdrawn his presidential candidacy after denouncing the election process as undemocratic, an official from his party said on Tuesday. "I can confirm that Prabowo-Hatta are withdrawing from the election. He was referring to Prabowo's vice-presidential running mate, Hatta Rajasa. It was not clear whether Prabowo's actions would affect the announcement by the Elections Commission later on Tuesday on the outcome of the July 9 election.

Indonesian presidential candidate Joko "Jokowi" Widodo smiles while waiting for the results announcement by the Elections Commission, at Waduk Pluit in JakartaBy Wilda Asmarini and Gayatri Suroyo JAKARTA (Reuters) - Indonesian former general Prabowo Subianto, the likely loser in a bitterly contested presidential election, withdrew his candidacy on Tuesday, throwing the vote into confusion just hours before the results were due to be announced. Prabowo's rival, Joko "Jokowi" Widodo, is widely expected to be named the next leader of Indonesia, home to the world's biggest Muslim community. A KPU spokesman said the withdrawal of Prabowo's team would not affect the legitimacy of the election process. This doesn't mean that we have to redo the election," said KPU spokesman Hadar Gumay.
