Indonesia elections: Candidates focus on economy

In Indonesia, the economy has been one of the main points of debate during the six-month election campaign.

    Indonesia's president's main challenger says the country needs to change its economic direction.

    Prabowo Subianto is up against incumbent Joko Widodo, who has overseen solid economic growth in his first term.

    But his rival in Wednesday's election says many Indonesians aren't seeing the benefits.

    Al Jazeera's Wayne Hay reports from Jakarta.
