BPN to file lawsuit in MK challenging 2019 Election result

Presidential candidate Prabowo Subianto

The meeting decided that the Prabowo-Sandi candidate pair will file a lawsuit in the Constitutional Court
Jakarta (ANTARA) - Prabowo-Sandi's National Winning Team (BPN) will challenge the 2019 election result by filing a lawsuit with the Constitutional Court (MK) and prepare requisite materials, Director of Advocacy and Legal of BPN Sufmi Dasco Ahmad stated.

"The meeting reached a decision that the Prabowo-Sandi candidate pair will file a lawsuit in the Constitutional Court," Ahmad confirmed here, Tuesday.

Ahmad noted that in the next few days, his side will ready the lawsuit materials in accordance with the deadline to advance the lawsuit to the MK.

Ahmad believes several important considerations were to be submitted to the MK, including the glaring disparities in vote counting.

The Indonesian Election Commission (KPU) had earlier determined the vote tally for the 2019 Election following the overall recapitulation at the national level at the KPU building in the wee hours of Tuesday.

KPU Commissioner Evi Novida Ginting stated that votes for the 2019 Presidential Election from 34 provinces and 130 overseas election committees indicated that pair 01 Jokowi-Ma'ruf had secured 85,607,362 votes, or 55.50 percent, while pair 02 Prabowo-Sandiaga had bagged 68,650,239 votes, or 44.50 percent.

The nationwide voter turnout in the 2019 Presidential Election had reached 199,987,870, whereas 154,257,601 valid votes for the presidential election were recorded.
