On this election, the inactive state of Wirasena does not register any voters, which makes the voters will come from only 3 states, out from 4. Because majority of Indokistani does registered and place their vote, this election result remain legal despite only three states joined the election.
Due to pressure from the National Forum to immediately held an election (because of continuous delay from the initial date set on April 2013), the election was seen to be held in a hurry. The electoral commision decided to take the date of 23 June as start of the election, just a week after the decision were made by the forum. On this, the electoral commision just give time of 3 days for each candidates to held a campaign promoting their programs and vision of their presidency.

On this election, only Tian published his presidency note. With no penalty applied for candidates that doesn't publish his presidency note, Rayhan still able to maintain his presidential candidacy.
On his note, Tian Abdurrahman proposed a process of Indonesianisation of Indokistan, on which he claimed that this program is fitted with Indokistan name meaning. The project includes a program to strengthen citizens loyalty to Indonesia, to imitate Indonesian administrative divisions arrangement to be used in Indokistan, and to encourage citizens to learn their local languages. Beside that, Tian promised to appoint ambassador to foreign countries, strengthen National Forum power and influence, and to establish official religion.

Despite that the votes also opened in an online media, all voters instead vote only from mobile poll.
The voting period were started in 23 June and was closed after one week in 30 June 2013.
