National Election

Today one of the most important events in Indonesia is held, which is National Election for the next president (2004-2009). The election is held today (Monday, 20th of September 2004) and the result can be seen in the Internet at KPU's Website. While the counting process will be done manually, but we can still see the result online from that site.

The use of IT technology was debatted because there were some errors and also vulnerable to SQL Injections when it was used to display the first election. Luckily, the IT team has changed it's infrasctructure and it's more secure than before (even though i had a little bit unsure about the real conditions). I hope that the budget that was used to make the IT system available will not be wasted, but it can be a valuable lesson for all of us.

Let's wait for the election result to find out who will be the next president for Indonesia. Will it be Megawati Soekarnoputri or will it be Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono? Lets find out in the KPU's website
