Supporters of the Joko "Jokowi" Widodo-Jusuf Kalla and Prabowo Subianto-Hatta Rajasa presidential tickets were expected to hold a

peace declaration at the Balai Kartini convention hall in South Jakarta on Sunday, said National Police spokesperson Brig. Gen. Boy Rafli Amar on Saturday.

"The two sides will hold a peace declaration together. We received reliable information that they will hold the declaration in good faith to preserve the peace [during

the announcement of the final results]," he said in Jakarta, adding that the declaration would be held at 1pm., according to kompas.com.

Boy hoped that the current peaceful conditions would continue until the General Elections Commission's (KPU) announcement of the final presidential election results on

July 22. Currently, the police and military are working together to maintain security, he said.

It has also been reported that President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono had plans to meet the two presidential candidates at the Presidential Palace on Sunday.
