Indonesian voters are headed to the polls under tight security today to cast ballots in regional elections across the world’s third-largest democracy and biggest Muslim-majority country.
 
The elections for 171 city mayors, regents, and provincial governors are likely to set the tone for national parliamentary and presidential elections in 2019, with some hardline Islamic leaders now publicly calling for the ousting of President Joko Widodo, who is expected to seek a second term.
 
Widodo has pledged to protect Indonesia’s tradition of pluralism and moderate Islam in the officially secular country.
