Indonesians go to the polls Wednesday to vote for a new president that will rule Southeast Asia's biggest economy for the next five years.
Here are five things you need to know:
1) An estimated 187 million voters will take part in the July 9 presidential election. Indonesia is not only the world's third biggest democracy; it's also the most populous Muslim nation and the largest economy in Southeast Asia. Analysts say Indonesia will be key in shaping Asia's future, so watch this election closely.
2) Joko Widodo: He's the Jakarta Governor who goes by the nickname "Jokowi" and until a few weeks ago was the clear front-runner in this presidential race. Jokowi is seen as the more market-friendly candidate and his 'man-of-the-street' charm and corruption-free reputation help explain his popularity with voters.
