Four days before Indonesia's presidential election, the two candidates and their running mates traded barbs over food security and graft in their final television debate on Saturday. Jakarta Governor Joko "Jokowi" Widodo and former general Prabowo Subianto are running neck-in-neck to be the new leader of the world's third-largest democracy. The debate was the last day to get their message across to voters before the elections body imposed a so-called quiet period leading up to the July 9 poll.
