A Miguel y a Jose, ________ veo hoy. Miguel and Jose, I'm seeing them today. los les

The answer is ‘los’ but since the construction is ‘ver a’ and the prepositions are already used for the names, I don’t see why it is not the indirect object pronoun ‘les’ required. 

This question relates to:
Spanish lesson "Using lo, la, los, las = him, her, it, them (direct object pronouns)"

¡Hola Karen!

You have to use a direct object after the preposition "a" with the verb "ver", even if the names have already been mentionned, this situation don't change the nature of the object and we need to use the direct object pronoun "los".

Thanks for your question.

Thank you, I had definitely misunderstood that. I thought the preposition made it an indirect object. Thanks for the speedy reply!
