Joko "Jokowi" Widodo, who is leading comfortably in the Indonesian presidential election according to quick count results, visited the flash Grand Indonesia mall in Central Jakarta on Saturday (20/04). The incumbent president, wearing his customary plain white long-sleeve shirt, black cotton trousers and sneakers, was quickly mobbed by the crowd, who shook his hands and took selfies with him. 

Jokowi came to the mall to have lunch with members of his National Campaign Team, including its chairman Erick Thohir. After a brief meal, Jokowi hopped on the newly opened Jakarta MRT from the Bundaran Hotel Indonesia Station and traveled to the end of the line at Lebak Bulus Station.
