The Jakarta branch of the Election Supervisory Agency, or Bawaslu, has questioned the accuracy of the temporary voters list, or DPS, ahead of the second round of the Jakarta gubernatorial election on April 19. Bawaslu Jakarta said 46,492 voters from the permanent voters list (DPT) were missing and identified around 13,000 duplicated voter registration cards after verifying the DPS on Thursday (06/04). The DPS list was provided by the General Election Commission, or KPU.
“The KPU has to explain the discrepancy between the DPT [permanent voters list] and the DPS,” Bawaslu Jakarta Head Mimah Susanti said in a meeting with the KPU in Jakarta on Thursday.
Mimah said Bawaslu Jakarta will not verify the voters list until KPU explains the difference in numbers or submit new data for the DPS.
