Population Agency, KPU Jakarta Reported to Police
Four pairs of gubernatorial candidates on Monday reported the Jakarta Election Commission (KPU Jakarta) and the Jakarta Population and Civil Registry Agency to police.
Lawyers from the teams of Alex Noerdin-Nono Sampono, Joko Widodo-Basuki, Hidayat Nur Wahid-Didik and Herdardji Supandji-Ahmad Riza reported the population agency (Dukcapil) and KPU Jakarta for the inaccurate voter list that is to be used for the July 11 gubernatorial election.
“We reported Dukcapil and KPU [Jakarta] to Jakarta Police related to the problem of the final voter list [DPT] and list of potential voters [DP4],” RB Jaya Bangkit, lawyer of the Alex-Nono pair, said at the police office. “We also reported Dukcapil because it was the one that made the initial list of DP4 that was submitted to KPU to be verified. It is suspected that there was data irregularity.”
Bangkit said that after examining the DPT data issued by KPU Jakarta, the team found 400,000 irregularities.
“Concerning this, we want the gubernatorial election to be delayed for a month to repeat data verification, mainly on irregular citizen registry numbers [NIK], doubled NIK and others.”
They used Article 263 of the criminal code on document forgery and Article 94 of the Population Administration Law to file the report against both institutions.
Candidate pair Faisal Basri-Biem, who did not join in filing the police report on Monday, said they supported the legal effort of the other four candidate pairings. The lawyer of Faisal’s team, Reinard Parapat, said it would support the idea of delaying the distribution of voters’ cards to those who double registered.
“But it needs approval from other candidates and KPU Jakarta,” Reinard added.
Dahliah Umar, chairwoman of KPU Jakarta, previously said that the election body would not revise the voter list that had been issued. She claimed that the problem could be solved by marking the double-registered voters on the lists that would be distributed to polling station committees and withholding one of the voting cards for those who were double-registered.
