Prabowo Subianto is this year’'s dark horse in the Indonesian parliamentary elections. A self-promoted quiet goat farmer, the candidate has a few skeletons in his closet from his less than quiet military past.

Subianto headed up the notorious Special Forces unit Kopassus, which was accused of atrocities. It earned him a fierce reputation. His military stature made him one of the most powerful men.’ But when he was suspected of plotting a coup he was kicked out of the military. Eleven years on and he'’s returned to the spotlight. With a stunning reinvention he’'s returned with a legion of supporters for his party, The Great Indonesian Movement. Despite the human rights activists, Subianto - who compares himself to Barack Obama - is now considered by millions to be credible for the country'’s top job. "It'’s been an extraordinary reinvention."
