The Constitutional Court Rejects 30 Dispute Cases on the Results of the 2020 Regional Elections, This is the Reason


Suara.com – The Constitutional Court (MK) rejected 30 requests for disputes over the results of the 2020 Concurrent Regional Head Election. This was decided at the hearing of the pronouncement of the decision at the Constitutional Court Building, Jakarta, Tuesday (16/2/2021).

These cases were not accepted because the applicant did not have a legal position and did not meet the threshold for difference in vote acquisition stipulated in Law Number 10 of 2016 concerning Pilkada.

MK argues that the propositions and evidence of the applicants are not sufficient to give confidence to the jury to deviate from the provisions of the threshold question and proceed to the proof.

Matters that are not accepted because the applicant does not have a legal position are disputes resulting from the Central Lampung, Karo elections (2 cases), Sungai Penuh, Mandailing Natal, Pegunungan Bintang, and Banjar (2 cases).

Previously on Monday (15/2), the Constitutional Court decided as many as 33 applications for disputing the results of the 2020 Concurrent Regional Head Election not to proceed to the verification stage.
