Indonesia election: 272 officials die from overwork in worlds largest election

Indonesia held the world’s biggest single-day elections combining the presidential vote with national and regional parliamentary ones in an effort to cut costs. So far 272 election staff have died and 1,878 others have fallen ill with fatigue-related illnesses caused by long hours of work counting as many as nearly a billion ballot papers by hand. Winners will be announced May 22.

Have all these people suddenly lost self-preservation instinct? Forgot how to breathe? Were forced to work without water, food and sleep? En masse?

If ballot counters died en mass anywhere else, the world would condemn it as obvious election fraud. Well done Indonesia. I hope you sink into the sea.
