ather than displaying their faces on billboards and banners, several Bali legislative candidates have decided to take their campaigns online.
I Gusti Agung Putri Astrid Kartika is one of them. For the past six months, the candidate from the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) has been counting on her two Facebook profiles and her blog page to promote her candidacy.
“One person left a comment, saying that a legislative candidate shouldn’t be drinking,” she said, referring to her recent Facebook profile update that she was “enjoying a beer”.
