Djohar got support from Group of 78 who previously insisted nominate George Toisutta who rejected by FIFA.
One spokesman for the Group of 78 Eddy Elison said before the 2nd round:
"The reason we nominate Djohar because he has a great track record in football. Moreover, he is also not a member of a (political) party.
Yes we hope he wins. If the first round the score was that much, hopefully he wins."
Six candidates withdrew before the election. They're Sutiyoso, Tahir Mahmud, Erwin Aksa, Indra Muchlis Adnan, Yesayas Buinei, and Jusuf Rizal.
