JAKARTA (REUTERS) - Jakarta Governor Joko "Jokowi"Widodo has a nine percentage point lead over ex-general Prabowo Subianto, less than two weeks before Indonesia's July 9 presidential election, according to the latest opinion poll published on Friday.

In a survey of 790 voters between June 5-24, the state-funded Indonesian Institute of Science found 43 per cent support for Mr Jokowi, 34 per cent for Mr Prabowo, with 23 per cent undecided.

All of Indonesia's polls show Mr Jokowi leading Prabowo but the gap between the two is narrowing.
