Will Jokowi Run for Vice President in 2024?

Summary

The Constitutional Court (MK) clarified the media coverage quoting a spokesperson for the Constitutional Court that an Indonesian president who has served two terms can become a vice presidential candidate. According to the Constitutional Court, the statement was a personal statement by court spokesman Fajar Laksono, not the institution's official stance or the Constitutional Court's decision.

"The statement regarding the issue in question is not an official statement and is not related to the authority of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Indonesia," said the press release of the Court's Public Relations yesterday.

Fajar's statement, who is the Head of the Public Relations and Domestic Cooperation Section, the Registrar's Office, and the General Secretariat of the Constitutional Court, has been criticized.

One of them came from the former Chief Justice of the Constitutional Court, Jimly Asshiddiqie, who said that the 1945 Constitution had regulated the president can only serve two times, 5 years each. "After that, he was no longer allowed, including being vice president," he said.
