Merdeka.com – President of the Democratic Constitution Initiative (KoDe), Veri Junaidi predicts that the Constitutional Court (MK) will reject the process Presidential election 2019 presented by the National Winning Body (BPN) Prabowo Subianto– Sandiaga Uno. This prediction is based on the testimony of experts and witnesses of the team Prabowo Subianto-Sandiaga Uno, considered weak in the judgment of the General Dispute of Electoral Results (PHPU) in the Constitutional Court (MK).
A number of statements by experts and witnesses that were deemed weak included the issue of the stealth DPT list, invalid data in the KPU of the vote counting information system (Situng), and the non-neutrality of the regional chiefs.
"Yes, if the consideration of the DPT witness information in my opinion is rejected by the Constitutional Court." If the Situng question template is definitively rejected, why is "Situng not a determinant of election results," Veri said. Mini Research Results: Comparison of Parties' Proposals, Evidence Tools and Legal Provisions Invitation for 2019 Presidential Election Dispute in Cikini Region, Menteng, Jakarta Center, Sunday (06/23).
Despite the accusation of BPN Prabowo Subianto-Sandiaga Uno that the regional chief committed an electoral violation, it also could not be proven. For example, the governor of Central Java, Ganjar Pranowo and 31 other regional chiefs who expressed their support for the 01 presidential and vice presidential candidate, Joko Widodo-Maruf Amin.
According to Veri, witness Prabowo Subianto-Sandiaga Uno failed to convince the Constitutional Court judge that Ganjar Pranowo and 31 regional chiefs violated the Electoral Law. In addition, the case of the statement of support from Ganjar Pranowo to Joko Widodo-Maruf Amin was dealt with by the Electoral Supervision Agency (Bawaslu).
In Bawaslu's ruling, Ganjar Pranowo is considered not to have committed a criminal or administrative electoral offense. But only violating ethics in the Regional Government Law.
"The question of but Ganjar Pranowo and some of the regional chiefs is already discussed and in fact is from Bawaslu because it was sued by the Electoral Supervision Organ," he said.
Veri then mentioned Prabowo Subianto-Sandiaga Uno's statement, Jaswar Koto, that there was invalid data on the Situng KPU. According to Veri, the Situng KPU data should not be questioned in the Constitutional Court. Because, the results of the 2019 Presidential Elections were not determined by Situng, but based on the recapitulation of the TPS-level step vote for KPU RI.
"It may be the model once the Court says that this problem is administrative, but it is not related to the election results. So, administratively, it is very likely to be corrected," he said.
According to Veri, director of the Center for Constitutional Studies (PUSAKO) of the Faculty of Law of Andalas University, Feri Amsari evaluated that the action proposed by the Prabowo Subianto-Sandiaga Uno field would be rejected by MK. In addition to testimonials from experts and witnesses who were not strong, according to Feri many of the data presented at the trial were invalid.
"Based on the facts of the trial, I find witnesses and experts weak in proving their case," he said.
The man born in Padang, West Sumatra also questioned the content of Prabowo Subianto-Sandiaga Uno's petition. He said that 15 points in the petitum were very incompatible with each other. For example, Prabowo Subianto-Sandiaga Uno asked the Court to decide on the repetition of the vote (PSU), on the other hand, urged the Court to replace the Commissioner of the KPU.
"I asked if it was granted everything, ask the PSU, but also asked all KPU commissioners to be fired.If granted, all who want to do the PSU, so there is something that is not logical," he said. [noe]
