Indonesia presidential race heats up

Election day in Indonesia is drawing closer, and polls suggest that a largely one-sided race has turned into a genuine competition.

The two main presidential candidates, Jakarta Governor Joko Widodo and ex-general Prabowo Subianto have debated the major issues facing their country.

Vaninder Singh, an economist with RBS, told Sharanjit Leyl that both the candidates have similar economic policies.
