Greatindonesia.co.id, Jakarta – The National Campaign Team (BPN) of Prabowo Subianto-Sandiaga Uno will once again report its findings on alleged election fraud to the Elections Supervisory Board (Bawaslu) on Friday (10/5/2019).
“There are five alleged cases of election fraud to be reported by BPN’s advocacy and legal directorate to Bawaslu,” Ferry Juliantono, the team’s spokesman, told the press on Thursday (9/5/2019).
The reports are related to the use of state resources and money for election purposes, violation of civil servants’ neutrality during the 2019 legislative and presidential elections, and cheating concerning C1 form usage for the victory of incumbent Joko Widodo and his running mate, Ma’ruf Amin, among others, he said.
Vasco Ruseimy, another spokesman of BPN, said fraud or cheating occurred not only during the day of polling, but before and after the voting day, and was going on until now.
The alleged fraud is structured, systematic and massive, viewed from various sides, he noted.
Meanwhile, presidential candidate Subianto has reiterated his call for conducting an immediate forensic audit of the General Elections Commission’s (KPU) Information Technology due to so many inconsistencies in the vote data entry published in the commission’s vote-count information system (Situng).
He claimed that the inconsistencies in the vote data entry in the KPU’s Situng were caused by “human order” instead of “human error”.
Subianto was quoted in a press statement that received on Tuesday morning as particularly highlighting the seemingly structural, systematic, and massive fraud in the 2019 general elections during a press conference with the foreign media held at his residence on Kertanegara Street no. 4, Selong, Kebayoran Baru, South Jakarta, on Monday afternoon.
“We have been involved in a very arduous and strenuous extensive political campaign and elections, and after the elections, we have tried to engage the foreign press and community to give our side of the story,” he said in his opening remarks at the meeting.
“In essence, we are trying to explain to the world and to Indonesia, of course, that what we experienced this time during this election is basically a blatant and flagrant violation of the basic norms of democracy,” Subianto said.
This founder of the Great Indonesia Movement (Gerindra) Party further said that people could identify the breadth of the election fraud through the “blatant” abuse of power on the police and other government institutions such as intelligence bodies.
“All these are well known, of course. They always tell us, ‘give us proof’ [yet] they are the law enforcement agencies. We do have a lot of proof and reports. The violation of voting sheets, voting papers, which have been punched before the election. In some cases [they were] discovered in Malaysia,” he said.
Subianto stressed that he regretted seeing election fraud in Indonesia, especially since this world’s third most populous democracy had fought for and chosen democracy in 1998. (shk)
VICE PRESIDENT KALLA ATTENDS CONTITUTION DAY COMMEMORATION
Greatindonesia.co.id, Jakarta – Vice President M Jusuf Kalla attended a function to observe Constitution Day organized by the People’s Consultative Assembly (MPR) at the Parliament Building, here, on Sunday (18/8/2019).
MPR Chairman Zulkifli Hasan in his remarks said that the country’s constitution would continue to develop in accordance with challenges facing the national and state life.
Therefore, the understanding of the existing constitution must be in line with the changes, he said.
“The Constitution is a law that rules this country, not a law on how the state rules. The state’s power must be restricted so the state administration is not arbitrary,” Hasan said.
Constitution Day is observed on August 18 annually to commemorate the birth of Indonesia’s 1945 Constitution (UUD 1945).
As part of the commemoration, MPR also organized a national seminar themed “Evaluation of the Implementation of the 1945 Constitution of the Republic of Indonesia.” (frn)

MEGAWATI ORDERS HER CADRES TO RESPECT PRABOWO AT
Greatindonesia.co.id, Bali – The Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDIP) leader, Megawati Soekarnoputri, has ordered her cadres to respect the Great Indonesia Movement (Gerindra) Party’s General Chairman, Prabowo Subianto, who would attend the opening ceremony of the PDIP’s congress.
When he attends the opening ceremony, which kicks off on Thursday, the party’s cadres should show respect and sympathy by applauding him, Chairman of the PDIP congress’ organizing committee, I Wayan Koster, said here on Wednesday evening.
Koster said the PDIP cadres were not allowed to disrespect any of the invited guests, including Prabowo Subianto, former contender of incumbent President, Joko Widodo, PDIP’s cadre, at the 2019 Presidential Elections.
On July 24, 2019, Prabowo Subianto had met Megawati Soekarnoputri at her Central Jakarta residence following his July 13 reconciliatory meeting with President-elect Joko Widodo (Jokowi).
Accompanied by Gerindra’s Deputy General Chairman, Edy Prabowo, and Secretary General, Ahmad Muzani, Prabowo was extended a warm welcome by Megawati’s son, Mohamad Prananda Prabowo, after arriving and getting out of his car at around 12:30 p.m. local time.
Subianto and Megawati, whose party is the main supporter of incumbent President and President-elect Jokowi, appeared happy during their meeting as was apparent in a photograph circulated by the PDIP to journalists.
Megawati enjoyed a round-table lunch along with her guests, her daughter Puan Maharani, her son Prananda Prabowo, and Cabinet Secretary, Pranomo Anung.
Megawati and Subianto have known each other for quite a long time. Moreover, they had contested as the presidential and vice presidential pair during the 2009 Presidential Elections. During that time, their popular slogan was “MegaPro” in their endeavor to challenge the Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono-Boediono pair.
Subianto’s meeting with Megawati took place six days after he met with Gerindra’s advisory council members on July 19 for talks on the future steps following his reconciliatory meeting with Jokowi on July 13.
The General Elections Commission (KPU) officially declared the Jokowi-Ma’ruf Amin pair as Indonesia’s president-elect and vice president-elect following the Indonesian Constitutional Court’s (MK’s) ruling on the presidential election result dispute on June 27, 2019.
According to the KPU’s final tally, the Jokowi-Amin pair secured 85 million votes, or 55.5 percent of the national vote, as against the contenders Subianto-Sandi’s 68 million votes, or 44.5 percent. (ran)
