House Committee II: E-voting discourse still need further study


Jakarta, IO – House Committee II chairman Ahmad Doli Kurnia Tandjung argued that the discourse to implement electronic voting (e-voting) in the 2024 elections needs to be further studied.

Although the discourse advanced by Communication and Information Minister Johnny G Plate is said to be able to bring effectiveness and efficiency in the political contestation process, Doli feared that it will have adverse impacts if the proposal is implemented without in-depth study.

“In my opinion, we need to be careful in implementing e-voting because in several developing countries, it is also prone to manipulation by hackers,” said Doli on Tuesday (5/4).

Instead of focusing on e-voting, Doli said we should pay more attention to evaluating the stages that can be done electronically. He alluded to the electronic recapitulation (e-recap) of votes. According to him, e-recap still has its shortcomings and need to be addressed more urgently.
