In a shocking turn of events, the Election Commission of Indonesia has said at least 270 election officials have died, due to exhaustion, caused by long hours of work, counting millions of ballot papers by hand. Indonesia held the world's biggest single-day elections on the 17th of April, where the presidential vote was combined with national and regional assembly elections.
