Anies and running mate Sandiaga declared victory after quick count results by multiple pollsters. 

Following his postelection victory, Sandiaga said in Jakarta on Thursday that he urges all residents to reunite after they were divided into factions during the gubernatorial election.

"No more prejudice, insinuations and mockery. Let us [put aside] the differences and unite for a better Jakarta," Sandiaga said. The deputy governor-elect said he would focus on reconciling with Governor Basuki "Ahok" Tjahaja Purnama and Deputy Governor Djarot Syaiful Hidayat. "We will work hard to fulfill the promises in our campaigns to Jakarta's residents and one of the starting points is to establish a transitional team with [the sitting] administration," he said. Anies and Sandiaga also said that existing programs will continue, especially the programs that have proved beneficial to the community. "Our goal is to serve the public well, without any discrimination. Civil servants who have performed well will continue to have a job, while those who deviate from our vision to serve the public's [best interests] will be cut off," Sandiaga said. "We are thankful for [Ahok] and Djarot who have paved the way for us to continue to effectively govern," he said.

On Wednesday, at Rumah Kertanegara in South Jakarta, shortly after declaring their victory, Anies said that it was a milestone for him and Sandiaga to set off on a new journey to return justice to Jakartans.

"For us, our journey is just starting. What we have achieved is not only a victory in the election, but a victory to bring back justice to the capital city," Anies said. Anies promised that his administration will remain focused on resolving social justice issues. "Jakarta is the most diverse city in Indonesia, and we are committed to taking care of it, as well as fighting for unity in this city. We want to celebrate unity and diversity at the same time," Anies said.

Anies Baswedan and running mate Sandiaga Salahuddin Uno have declared victory after quick count results showed that they received most of the votes in the second round of the Jakarta gubernatorial election on Wednesday (19/04). Great Indonesia Movement Party (Gerindra) chairman Prabowo Subianto, who backed Anies and Sandiagio, declared the pair's victory at Rumah Kertanegara in South Jakarta. "Thank God. We just have news that the quick count said Jakarta will have a new governor and deputy governor," Prabowo said. "Anies and Sandi were chosen as candidates at Rumah Kertanegara on Sept. 23 last year, and today they declare their victory at the same place," Prabowo added. "It is my honor to congratulate Anies Baswedan and Sandiaga Uno here. This is a victory for all Jakartans. This is a win for democracy. And for sure, we won't be winning if prominent figures did not support Anies-Sandi." Prabowo also highlighted the need to embrace all parties as they are also Indonesians. "It is clear that we are one nation that lives on the same ship. We must get along with others, all religions, all ethnicities must be one, that's my commitment," the former Army general said. In a more diplomatic way, Anies said this is a milestone for him and Sandiaga to set off on a new journey to return justice to Jakartans. "For us, our journey is just starting. What we have achieved is not only victory in the election, but a victory to bring back justice to the capital city," Anies said. He promised that he and Sandiaga will remain consistent and focus on resolving social justice issues. "Jakarta is the most diverse city in Indonesia, and we are committed to take care of it, as well as fighting for unity in this city. We want to celebrate unity and diversity at the same time," Anies said. He added that he and Sandiaga will remain friends with rivals Basuki "Ahok" Tjahaja Purnama and Djarot Saiful Hidayat. Sandiaga echoed this sentiment and said he and Anies will start reconciliation with their rivals right away. "Reconciliation starts today, at this very hour; we will communicate with Basuki and Djarot and asks for their time to have a dialogue," Sandiaga said. Based on the quick count result by Saiful Mujani Research and Consulting (SMRC), Anies and Sandiaga received 58.31 percent of the votes, while rival pair Ahok-Djarot only managed to get 41.69 percent. Another pollster, Cyrus Network, also recorded a landslide win for Anies-Sandiaga at 57.39 percent of the vote, leaving Ahok-Djarot with 42.61 percent.

Political observers have slammed the idea of implementing Islamic law, or sharia, in the capital city, which has been promoted by gubernatorial candidate Anies Baswedan and his running mate Sandiaga Uno. Jeiry Sumampouw of NGO watchdog the Indonesian Voters' Committee (Tepi) said the use of the sensitive issue is not going to help the pair in Jakarta's gubernatorial election. "The issue is not a leverage [for Anies]. It's insignificant. It can only have a negative impact for him," Jeiry said in a discussion in Jakarta on Tuesday (11/04). He admitted there are voters in favor of sharia, but not many. The majority of Jakarta residents would not accept Islamic law and may instead turn against Anies and Sandiaga. "It could be seen in several recent surveys, where the candidate pair No. 3 saw a significant decline in electability," Jeiry said. Jakarta, according to Jeiry, is very pluralistic and has residents of diverse origins and religious backgrounds. This would change if sharia were imposed. The implementation of Islamic law would also contravene the Pancasila state ideology and the 1945 Constitution. Another researcher, Arif Susanto of the State Affairs and Islamic Studies Center (PSIK), said the idea of having sharia in Jakarta rests on inconsistent logic, by which residents of the religiously diverse city would be forced to follow the teachings of one religion. Other issues, he added, such dealing with poverty, traffic congestion and corruption, are of much higher importance. "This is the inconsistency; they do not fight for the important issues, but produce unnecessary ideas," Arif said. Anies and Sandiaga have promised the implementation of Islamic law, if they win the election. They see sharia as perfectly fit for the capital city.

Sandiaga Uno, the running mate of Jakarta gubernatorial candidate Anies Baswedan, has denied any wrongdoing related to embezzlement allegation against him. The Jakarta Police have summoned him to testify as a witness on Tuesday (21/03) in an investigation involving alleged misappropriation of funds in a Rp 7 billion ($527,000) land transaction in 2012. However, the businessman-turned-politician has yet to decide whether he would comply with the summons. "[I will find out] whether I should go, or whether I can be represented [by my lawyers]. My schedules are tight, with only 29 days of campaigning left. I will consult with my legal team," Sandiaga said on Monday. He added that he preferred to meet with potential voters instead of testifying. According to a statement by Sandiaga's legal counsel, the case was a misunderstanding between two friends due to political differences. "I have hoped for a legal decision related to the case involving two old friends to be resolved amicably, as it was only a misunderstanding," Sandiaga said. "I wish to make peace between the two parties and unite those who have been separated due to different political views. Do not allow politics to stand in the way. It is a common dispute and it should not be overexposed," he added. He was also questioned by the Tanah Abang Police on Friday over allegations of defamation. At the time, he told reporters that the accusations were also based on a mere misunderstanding. Sandiaga and Anies will face incumbent pair Basuki "Ahok" Tjahaja Purnama and Djarot Saiful Hidayat in the second round of the Jakarta gubernatorial election on April 19.

Incumbent Deputy Governor Djarot Saiful Hidayat asked the Jakarta Elections Supervisory Agency, or Bawaslu, over the weekend to provide detailed information outlining the lawful criteria for running a political campaign. Djarot and his running mate, Governor Basuki "Ahok" Tjahaja Purnama, have been accused of conducting an "underground" campaign ahead of the second round of the Jakarta gubernatorial election, slated for April 19. Djarot explained that regulated criteria for campaign activities are vital to prevent future accusations of unlawful conduct. The deputy governor has stated that his campaign has never conducted any activities that would run foul of regulations as stipulated by Bawaslu. "It is complicated. For example, if I visit a market with my family to buy something, then people end up crowding around us, is that considered a campaign? I will not report that activity to Bawaslu. It troubles me if I have to register every personal activity [with the supervisory agency]," Djarot said on Sunday (19/03). "[...] If my whole family wants to get a haircut, and we visit a salon, should I register that as well? And if we go to a cinema, should that be registered as well? That's a public place where people often go. I'm sure that Basuki didn't conduct [an unlawful] campaign," Djarot added, when asked about his running mate's campaign activities. Ahok and Djarot are currently trying to curry favor among Jakarta voters to bolster their chances of winning next month's runoff election against Anies Baswedan and Sandiaga Uno.

However, recent ethnic and religious tensions in the capital have served as an obstacle for Ahok and Djarot in their quest for a second term.

Ahok, a Christian of Chinese descent, is currently on trial for blasphemy over a reference he made to a Koranic verse in a speech in October last year.

He has repeatedly denied the charges.

Meanwhile, Sandiaga was summoned by the Jakarta Police on Monday for questioning as a witness in an investigation related to the alleged misappropriation of funds in a land sale in 2012.
