General Election 2024: Tug of War over Schedule

Summary

The government and the House of Representatives (DPR) have yet to agree on the schedule for the 2024 general election. A working meeting between the Ministry of Home Affairs, the General Elections Commission (KPU), and the House's legal commission failed to reach a decision on October 6, 2021. The House's legal commission Deputy Chairman Saan Mustopa said that the Minister of Home Affairs Tito Karnavian did not attend the meeting. "There is a limited meeting with President Joko Widodo," he said.

Saan said the postponement was also to give the KPU and other election organizers time to conduct a deeper study. The House will also invite the Constitutional Court and the Supreme Court to discuss the deadline for resolving disputes over election results. Saan admitted that there had not been an agreement regarding the election schedule. "There is no common ground regarding micro-issues," he said.
