KPU Requires Letter of Good Conduct for Legislative Candidates
The General Election Commission (KPU) will require legislative candidates participating in the 2024 General Election to have a letter of good conduct (SKCK) from the police, although this is not regulated in Elections Law No. 7/2017. KPU commissioner Idham Cholik said his institution has the authority to regulate SKCK obligations for legislative candidates.
"The KPU has attributive authority in carrying out the verification process for legislative candidates," Idham said Monday. According to him, in the 2019 election, legislative candidates must include the SKCK when registering with the KPU. This is regulated in KPU Regulation No. 20/2018. He emphasized that the obligation would be re-applied for the 2024 Election. "SKCK will be applied as one of the requirements for administrative completeness," he said.
