Party versus presidential performance in the 2009 elections, eastern Indonesia


The map shows the difference between the vote for each presidential candidate team on 8 July 2009 and the vote previously received by the parties that supported them in the DPR elections of 9 April 2009. In all of Java and most of Sumatra and Kalimantan, there was significant swing to the Megawati team, a smaller swing to the SBY-Budiono team and a strong swing away from Jusuf Kalla. Eastern Indonesia produced a more varied result, with strong swings to Kalla in his native Sulawesi.

Four parties, winning together 3.4% of the DPR vote, did not endorse a presidential candidate. The swings registered to candidates therefore exceed the swings against.
