April elections 'Indonesia's most fraudulent'

Anti-corruption body says April's parliamentary elections were the most fraudulent in recent history.

    Indonesia’s parliamentary elections, held earlier in April were considered a success by political observers because of the lack of violence.

    But the country's anti-corruption body has said that the elections were the most fraudulent in recent history.

    Anti-corruption activists say cases of vote buying and cheating during campaigning and on election day have more than doubled.
