JAKARTA: The head of the European Union Election Observation Mission (EU EOM)

Ford will be accompanied by two EU EOM team members who are based in Jakarta
and four others who are based in the Papuan towns of Jayapura and Manokwari.
It will be his seventh visit to towns outside Jakarta ahead of the election runoff after
