    “I appeal to all of you, I’m forced to ask for your help since we are lacking the funding for the campaign,” said Prabowo yesterday in the national declaration of the additional group of supporters.

    “We will only depend on the people,” said the former Kopassus Commander. 

    Prabowo Subianto claims that the funding would most likely be used to pay their voting witnesses across 805,000 polling stations in Indonesia. However, Prabowo admits that he is not ashamed of his coalition party’s lack of funding upon election year.
