Jakarta. The Indonesia Stock Exchange, or IDX, announced on Tuesday (18/04) that all trading activities will be suspended on Wednesday to allow Jakarta residents to cast their ballots in the second round of the gubernatorial election.
The announcement comes on the heels of President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo's decree last Friday declaring April 19 a public holiday in the capital.
Bank Indonesia also announced that it will provide only limited operations on voting day.
The central bank's representative office in Jakarta will close on Wednesday, though offices outside the province are expected to operate normally.
Trading on the IDX is expected to resume on Thursday.
