A month before Indonesia's presidential election, the two candidates traded barbs in their first televised debate on Monday, with Jakarta Governor Joko "Jokowi" Widodo seen faring better than former special forces general Prabowo Subianto. The two candidates are close in opinion polls ahead of the July 9 election, although Jokowi holds the edge. One survey said, up to 40 percent of the voters are undecided.
