    Background: Indonesia is preparing for its first election in sixteen years. The election is scheduled to be held on July 3, and electioneering has been banned for the last week leading up to the elections.

    On July 3, more than 57 million voters will go the polls to choose between the ten political parties. The voters will select candidates for both houses of parliament.

    President Suharto will not be voting. Like all members of the armed forces and the police force, he is prohibited from taking part in the election.

    Although campaigning has officially ended, Djakarta is still emblazoned with posters and banners. Custom officers were used in a full-scale dress rehearsal for polling day. The dress rehearsal was staged on Saturday (June 26).
