Early quick counts have SBY's Democratic Party in the lead

Early quick count results began trickling in Thursday, with President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono's Democratic Party leading the field.

The Indonesian Survey Circle (LSI), the Indonesian Survey Institute (LSI) and the National Survey Institute (LSN) all had the Democratic Party leading the list with around 20 percent of votes.

The Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P), headed by former president Megawati Sukarnoputri, was second with around 15 percent, while the Golkar Party, chaired by Vice President Jusuf Kalla trailed in third with less than 13 percent.

The Islamic-based Prosperous Justice Party (PKS) was fourth with around 8 percent.

However, the three survey institutes differed in their order of the political parties after the top four.

The other political parties that managed to make it into the top 10 included the National Awakening Party (PKB), the National Mandate Party (PAN), the United Development Party (PPP), the Great Indonesia Movement Party (Gerindra), and the People's Conscience Party (Hanura)
