The bishops of Indonesia urged Catholics to participate in the upcoming local elections by voting for Catholics who honor the common good while fighting unjust practices.
The Indonesian Bishops' Conference (KWI) issued an exhortation on Dec. 4, asking people to vote for candidates who avoid corruption and represent national values, UCA News reported.
The exhortation was signed by Archbishop Vincensius Sensi Potokota of Ende, who serves as chairman of the KWI's Commission for the Laity, and Father Paulus Christian Siswantoko, executive secretary of the commission.
The Indonesian province, district and municipal elections will take place on Dec. 9. They were previously set for Sept. 23, but were postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
