BOGOR (MKRI) — The workshop on the 2024 General Election Results Dispute Resolution (PHPU) for the National Democrat (Nasdem) Party was closed on Thursday, March 9, 2023 at the Constitutional Court’s (MK) Pancasila and Constitution Education Center in Bogor, West Java Province.
Acting Head of the Pancasila and Constitution Education Center Elisabeth said in the closing ceremony that a democratic election can only take place if all stages are democratic, including a fair election dispute resolution by a judicial institution that can provide legal certainty. The 1945 Constitution grants the Constitutional Court the authority to resolve disputes over the results of the election of DPR (House of Representatives), DPRD (Regional Legislative Council), DPD (Regional Representatives Council), and president-vice president as well as regional heads.
“One of the Court’s authority is deciding disputes over the results of general and regional elections. Therefore, it designs workshops on PHPU to improve awareness of the Court’s procedural law for PHPU for litigants,” she stressed.
She added that Indonesia will hold a simultaneous election next year. The elected legislative members will direct Indonesia’s course. Therefore, this workshop was expected to help participants understand PHPU as both the petitioner and the relevant party.
“The understanding of the PHPU procedure by the litigants will help make the resolution of any disputes easier,” she emphasized.
