How the ‘TikTok general’ became frontrunner in Indonesian election

Vote counting is under way in Indonesia’s presidential election, with Defence Minister Prabowo Subianto taking a strong lead in an early, unofficial tally. Subianto has targeted the youth vote, particularly by making use of social media, earning himself the nickname the “TikTok general”.
