Jakarta High Court grants an appeal filed by KPU to conduct elections as scheduled


Jakarta, IO – Jakarta High Court cancels the ruling by Central Jakarta District Court to postpone the 2024 general election, reported Kompas, Wednesday (21/4).

It rules that the lower court has no authority to judge the case. The General Elections Commission (KPU) said it was grateful for the decision as the decision will ensure that the preparatory stages for GE2024 will proceed according to what has been planned. KPU chairman Hasyim Asy’ari said the decision also served as a precedent that election cases could not be tried by a general court.

“Matters related to elections fall under the authority of Bawaslu [Elections Supervisory Agency], Administrative Court and the Constitutional Court,” said Hasyim.

The lawsuit against KPU was previously filed by Prima Party which claimed that it was treated unfairly when KPU disqualified it in the registration and verification stages of political parties wishing to contest GE2024. Prima Party claimed that there was misconduct on the part of KPU and its use of Sipol, an online information database, as the reason for its failing the administrative verification process. (un)
