After quick count results indicated that the pair will not remain in the office for the second term, Ahok said he wished to be remembered as a governor who did something for the city.

“I have reduced the notorious flooding in Jakarta. That’s more important to me than another term,” he said, as quoted by Suara Pembaruan.

“To me, a good name is much more important than an office,” Ahok said.
