Jakarta – The Chairperson of the KPU’s Legal Counsel Team in the dispute over the election results dispute (PHPU) of the Presidential Election, Ali Nurdin, revealed a number of weaknesses from Prabowo Subianto-Sandiaga Uno’s (Prabowo-Sandi) lawsuit to the Constitutional Court (MK). First, said Ali, Prabowo-Sandi as the applicant did not explicitly state the locus of alleged structured, massive and systematic election fraud.
“For the application now there is almost no (locus). Not specifically stated explicitly by the applicant,” Ali said at the Constitutional Court Building, Medan Merdeka Barat, Central Jakarta, Wednesday (06/12/2019).
This, said Ali, is different from the request submitted by the Prabowo camp in the 2014 General Election. At that time, Ali, who was also the KPU’s attorney, said that the locus in question was clear and numerous, around nearly 300 electoral districts (electoral districts) or regencies / cities.
“The petitioners mentioned summarily in 34 provinces. Because we were prepared in 34 provinces, we all prepared them. If later they emerge from which polling stations (polling stations) are prepared, we are ready,” he said.
Secondly, said Ali, a number of arguments used by the Prabowo-Sandi camp were arguments that had been questioned in the 2014 election, such as allegations of election fraud in the TSM. However, the KPU and its legal team can prove that there is no fraud in TSM in the 2014 election.
“Especially now that the TSM violation argument did not involve the KPU at all. The KPU was not accused of cheating with related parties in their petition (Prabowo-Sandi application),” he said.
Third, Ali continued, Probowo-Sandi also did not accuse the KPU of having wrong calculations. According to Ali, Prabowo-Sandi indirectly admitted that if the KPU’s calculation results related to the election results were correct.
“Then if you accuse the counting system (situng), the KPU is fraudulent, is the matter the same as the vote acquisition? After all there are 810,000 polling stations,” he said firmly.
Fourth, Ali assessed that it was difficult for the Constitutional Court to fulfill Prabowo-Sandi’s request to disqualify Jokowi-Ma’ruf Amin presidential candidate candidate candidate. According to him, the disqualification of the candidate candidate could occur with two conditions, namely the existence of a case about the requirements of the candidate and the question of violations that TSM threatened democracy.
“The Court only one who decided on the basis of TSM that threaten democracy, namely elections in Kotawaringin West, because of threats and intimidation, arising from the community can no longer exercise their voting right according to your heart. Now there is not? If in Kotawaringn Southwestern kan no threat he considered it and that mass was considered, many regional heads were threatened. If this presidential election is the region which is threatened to use voting rights or feel free? Isn’t there, “he explained.
Fifth, Ali said, his party had mapped three allegations submitted by Prabowo-Sandi to the KPU. According to him, the KPU had and would answer the three allegations with data and evidence that had been prepared. These three allegations are problems with invalid or multiple DPT, problems with problems that are problematic, and forms C7 or attendance lists that are omitted.
According to Ali, the KPU has worked correctly so that it can answer these allegations easily.
“For example, 17.5 million voters whose birth dates are the same. That is not engineering. It is real . There is evidence. Why? Because many people were born in the past year who did not know when the date and month were born. So that was included as born voters “January 1, July 1, and December 31. In the 2014 General Election there were also even more numbers,” he explained.
Regarding situng, Ali stressed that this did not become the basis for the KPU in determining the results of the vote. The KPU, he said, used tiered recirculation from the district to the KPU RI to determine the results of the vote.
“If there is no C7 form, all of them enter the ballot box. There is nothing outside the box. What is said in Sidoarjo is not clear at which polling station,” Ali concluded.
Weaknesses that Prabowo-Sandi’s lawsuit revealed by Ali are the weaknesses of the lawsuit or application that was registered on May 24, 2019 ago. The KPU has not received an official copy from the Constitutional Court as a result of the improvement of Prabowo-Sandi’s application and is still waiting for the Constitutional Court’s attitude whether to accept the results of the improved Prabowo-Sandi application.
