The legal team of the Prabowo Subianto-Hatta Rajasa ticket has specified the details of alleged presidential election violations in 34 provinces across Indonesia, in its lawsuit submitted to the Constitutional Court on Friday. Based on election result dispute (PHPU) documents published on the court’s official website at mahkamahkonstitusi.go.id, in the province of Aceh, election violations were related to the number of voters in the province being different than the number of ballots used in the election. The Prabowo-Hatta team said the Aceh General Elections Commission (KPUD) and related committees, such as district election committees and election organizing groups, were unable to carry out their main duties and functions in line with existing laws and regulations, leading to the presidential election being undemocratic, Antara news agency reported.
The Prabowo-Hatta team said that in North Sumatra, particularly in South Nias regency, the KPUD had used its power to mark up the results of a presidential and vice presidential candidate by between 100 and 200 percent.
In this regard, the team said, it had filed objections with the Election Supervisory Agency (Bawaslu), which later accommodated the report by issuing recommendations for revotes at a number of polling stations. However, the KPUD did not implement the recommendations.
