The House of Representatives has said it would not force the implementation of the electronic voting (e-voting) system in the 2019 elections as Indonesia was not yet ready. “One of the provisions agreed on by lawmakers in the deliberation of the election bill is that we will not apply the e-voting system in the near future,” said NasDem Party lawmaker Johnny G. Platte, who is also a member of the House’s special committee for the deliberation of the bill.
Initially, the committee planned to implement the e-voting system in the 2019 legislative and presidential elections and enshrine it into law.
… The committee recently held a working visit to Germany and Mexico, two countries that have applied e-voting systems. “However, what we found was that the e-voting system in Germany is problematic. The system is prone to being hacked,” Johnny said.
