Image of the day (9): doing whatever it takes to turn defeat into victory

Prabowo claims victory

This is astonishing.

To clutch victory from the jaws of defeat when the situation looked utterly hopeless.

The deficit was six million votes for God’s sake. SIX MILLION votes!

How to come back from that? In football terms, it would be equivalent to Brazil striking back against Germany and smacking in seven late goals to win 8-7 instead of losing 7-1.

Ultimately Brazil didn't make it into the World Cup Final but Prabowo looks destined to become Indonesia’s next president. That's the way it goes. Not that he wants power mind you - but because it is his calling. He has the obligation to serve the Indonesian people. And anyway, what’s the alternative? A political upstart and furniture maker from central Java? We can’t have that can we!
