VOI News :  The Jakarta Metropolitan Police have prepared 5,822 personnel to secure election rallies for presidential candidate pairs at Gelora Bung Karno (GBK) Main Stadium and Jakarta International Stadium (JIS) in Jakarta on Saturday (February 10).

"We divided them into two: 2,566 personnel at JIS and 3,256 personnel at GBK," said Police Chief Commissioner Ade Ary Syam Indradi, head of public relations of the Jakarta Metropolitan Police, on Friday.

Two pairs of presidential and vice presidential candidates, Anies Baswedan-Muhaimin Iskandar and Prabowo Subianto-Gibran Rakabuming Raka, will hold large-scale campaign rallies in Jakarta on Saturday, marking the end of the campaigning period.

Anies and Muhaimin will hold their rally at JIS, while Prabowo and Gibran will hold their rally at GBK Main Stadium.

Indradi said that the joint team of personnel has been drawn from the Jakarta Metropolitan Police, district and city police, the Jayakarta Regional Military Command, and government agencies at the provincial and city levels, including the Public Order Security Agency and the Fire Management and Rescue Office.

In the GBK area, a car-free rule will be applied from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.

He appealed to people to help ensure security, safety, order, and smooth traffic flow.

"Let us pray for the realization of security for the implementation of the general elections, maintain the nation's unity so that we are not divided, and hopefully, the 2024 General Elections will run safely, peacefully, and with dignity," he said.

Indonesia will hold the elections on February 14, when around 204.8 million voters are expected to participate. (Antara/VOIRRI)
