Megawati supporters fill the streets
PDI followers turned Jakarta red and black on their final day of campaigning
Hundreds of thousands of supporters of Indonesian opposition leader Megawati Sukarnoputri have paraded through the streets of Jakarta as campaigning reaches a climax ahead of Monday's elections.
Party followers shouted choruses of "Mega, Mega", accompanied by beating drums and blaring car horns, while a trailer towed a huge wood and canvas bull through the crowds.
Tens of thousands of people have massed at previous rallies for Megawati, the daughter of Indonesia's founding President Sukarno.
The ruling Golkar party, which has dominated Indonesian politics for the past three decades, now hardly dares campaign among people enraged by its past abuses. However, our correspondent says with plenty of funds available, Golkar cannot be discounted.
Some 130 million people are expected to vote and around 450 foreign observers are in Indonesia to help monitor the elections, billed as the most democratic in 44 years.
Campaigning has been largely peaceful, but clashes were reported on Wednesday between supporters of Golkar, PDI-Struggle and the United Development party in the West Java town of Cirebon. Buildings, cars and motorcycles were damaged.
Clashes also broke out on Wednesday in the Balinese capital of Denpasar between Golkar and Megawati followers. Several people were injured, while one car was burned and some houses were damaged, including the local Golkar leader's home.
