Indonesia's Parliamentary elections will take place in April 2009, with Presidential elections following later in the year. More than 154 million voters will be eligible to vote for the 550-seat national parliament. The last elections in 2004 saw some over 100 million Indonesians take to the polls, choosing from over 400,000 national, local and provincial candidates.
