Four days before Indonesia's presidential election, the two candidates and their running mates traded barbs over food security and graft in their final television debate on Saturday. Jakarta Governor Joko "Jokowi" Widodo and former general Prabowo Subianto are running neck-in-neck to be the new leader of the world's third-largest democracy. The debate was the last day to get their message across to voters before the elections body imposed a so-called quiet period leading up to the July 9 poll. Food, energy, and the environment were the topics under discussion in the debate, and both presidential candidates looked to win over undecided voters, which one survey estimated at around 20 percent. The typically cordial debate got heated when Jokowi's running mate Jusuf Kalla repeatedly raised the topic of corruption scandals involving key supporters of Prabowo. Prabowo said in reference to a speech made at a campaign rally earlier in the week, "I'm not saying there are no thieves in my party ... but what I meant was (corruption) is a phenomenon in our country."
