The opposition Indonesian Democratic-Party Struggle won the most votes in last month's legislative election, according to official results on Friday, but will need support from another party even to nominate its candidate to run for president. PDI-P won 18.9 percent of the vote, the election commission said, short of the 25 percent threshold needed to nominate the hugely popular Jakarta governor Joko "Jokowi" Widodo as president.
