Indonesia's economic boom fuelling inequality

Increasing division between rich and the poor is key issue in upcoming election.

    As Indonesia's economy grows, so is the gap between rich and the poor.

    With elections due in July, the economy is likely to be a key issue for many voters. 

    The government admits that the growing divide is a problem that needs to be addressed soon. 

    Opposition parties are trying to reach out to poor people, saying they will improve their lives.
