The MK paid attention to the DPKTb across the country but found nothing that could harm or benefit the interest of the two presidential pairs."
Jakarta (ANTARA News) - The Constitutional Court (MK) said that there was no evidence that the Special Voters List, Additional Final List (DPTb) and Additional Special Voters List (DPKTb) had been tampered with during the July 9, presidential election.

"There is no evidence that the petitionee (the General Election Commission/KPU) or the related party (the Joko Widodo - Jusuf Kalla) or both of them, have mobilized (voters)," MK Judge Ahmad Fadlil Sumadi said when reading the MK legal consideration on the presidential election results dispute at the MK here, Thursday.

The allegation of the petitioner (the Presidential and Vice Presidential Candidate Prabowo - Hatta pair) that the DPKTb in North Sumatra, Riau, Jakarta and East Java carried large lists of voters which could benefit or harm one of the two presidential contestants was unfounded, he said.

"The MK paid attention to the DPKTb across the country but found nothing that could harm or benefit the interest of the two presidential pairs," he said.

The MK was also of the view that the use of the DPKTb did not violate the law and its implementation was part of the voters right, particularly those who were not included in the eligible voters list (DPT).

"The use of the DPKTb, DPK and DPTB was legal and had given space for voters even if they were not included in the DPT," he said.
