Jokowi Was Brought Before Bawaslu On Charges Of Violating The Election Law.

 

Aside from that, Jokowi is not a member of the Prabowo-Gibran campaign team that is registered with the General Elections Commission (KPU), according to Rapen.

Gapteks.com, Jakarta - In the midst of the 2024 general election campaign season, a group loyal to presidential candidate number three Ganjar-Mahfud, Jarnas Gamki Gama, intended to file a complaint against President Joko Widodo or Jokowi with the Elections Supervisory Agency (Bawaslu) for purported infractions.

Jarnas Gamki Gama chairman Rapen Sinaga said that Iriana was the one who reportedly raised a "V sign" from the window of the president's official vehicle on January 22 at Salatiga, Central Java. 

"When Ganjar-Mahfud supporters yelled "long live Ganjar, long life Ganjar" at Jokowi [as the president's car passed by], two fingers (a V sign) are shown," Rapen stated on Friday.

According to Rapen's analysis, the V sign represents support for the second presidential candidate duo, Prabowo Subianto-Gibran Rakabuming Raka. He said, "There is a criminal violation of the Election Law in Jokowi's action while using state facilities, the presidential car, and the fact that Jokowi is not in the Prabowo-Gibran camp."

Article 547 of the Election Law states that any state official who willfully decides or acts in a way that benefits or harms an election contender during the campaign season faces a maximum sentence of three years in prison and a maximum fine of Rp36,000,000. He claims that the President is suspected of breaking this law.

Aside from that, Jokowi is not a member of the Prabowo-Gibran campaign team that is registered with the General Elections Commission (KPU), according to Rapen.

Administrator of Jarnas Gamki Gama, Nikson Gans Lalu, stated over the phone on Friday, January 26, that "jokowi as the head of government must stand above all parties, even though the law says that [the president] is allowed [to take sides in elections."

Today, January 26, Jarnas Gamki Gama intended to submit the report. Nikson thought Bawaslu would call First Lady Iriana and President Jokowi to order an investigation. Therefore, we insist that exercising statesmanship come first.
