Greatindonesia.co.id, Jakarta – Data entries of vote counts of the 2019 presidential elections on the Vote Count Information System of the General Election Commission (KPU) cover 641,853 polling stations (TPS), or 78.91 percent of the total 813,350 TPS.
Incumbent Joko Widodo (Jokowi)-Ma’ruf Amin bagged 68,012,184 votes, or 56.29 percent, while challenger Prabowo Subianto-Sandiaga Uno secured 52,810,224 votes, or 43.71 percent.
According to KPU Situng’s disclaimer, the date entries were based on figures on C1 vote count forms obtained from polling stations at the city and district levels.
Any errors in date entries can be rectified during an open plenary meetings on recapitulation at the sub-district level.
Corrections of any inconsistencies of data entries on Situng and C1 from copies will be done in line with the figures on the C1 form copies.
The KPU clarified that data appearing on the KPU Situng is not the official result of the election vote counts.
The KPU will make an official announcement of the official vote count results on May 22, 2019.
The simultaneous legislative and presidential elections, held on April 17, 2019, across Indonesia, have fueled two controversies until now, specifically concerning the high death counts of polling station members and Subianto team’s claims of data entry inconsistencies on the Situng.
The Indonesian Medical Association (IDI) notified the press that 469 polling station attendants died of ailments, including heart and neurological diseases, and not owing to fatigue as reported earlier.
The Health Ministry remarked that the death toll had reached 445 as of Sunday (May 12) owing to 13 diseases.
Furthermore, 92 election supervisory officers and 22 policemen also reportedly died in the post-election period in different provinces.
In the meantime, the Prabowo Subianto team had reported some 73,716 wrong vote data entries on KPU Situng to the Election Supervisory Board (Bawaslu) on May 3, 2019.
“Central Java reportedly had the largest number of errors, notably in 7,666 polling stations, 5,826 polling stations in East Java, 4,327 polling stations in North Sumatra, 3,296 polling stations in South Sumatra, and 3,219 polling stations in South Sulawesi,” Mustofa Nahrawardaya of the team, stated.
The tolerance level of error in the IT system is 0.1 percent, while 15.4 percent was found in the KPU Situng, he pointed out. (ran)
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)
