Conflict of Interest Overshadows KPU's Selection Committee


President Joko Widodo issued Presidential Decree No. 120/P/2021 on the appointment of a selection committee for General Elections Commission (KPU) members candidates for 2022-2027. Home Affairs Minister Tito Karnavian said that the team had been selected on October 8, 2021. They will immediately work to prepare for selecting KPU and General Elections Supervisory Body (Bawaslu) members.
