Indonesian stocks are taking a beating on Thursday, with the Jakarta Composite down 2.8%.
This comes after early counting showed that the main opposition party, the Indonesian Democratic Party-Struggle, did not gather enough votes to nominate Jakarta governor Joko Widodo for the presidency without a coalition, reports Reuters. The final results are due May 9.
