Jokowi-Ma’ruf campaign videotron violates KPU decree: Bawaslu
The Jakarta Post
The Jakarta Elections Supervisory Agency (Bawaslu) has declared that several videotrons displaying campaign advertisements for the Joko “Jokowi” Widodo and Ma’ruf Amin presidential ticket violate the General Elections Commission (KPU) Decree No. 175 on the placement of campaign attributes in the capital ahead of next year’s election.
Jakarta Bawaslu commissioner Muhammad Puadi said the agency would coordinate with the city’s One-Stop Integrated Services Agency (PTSP) to remove the Jokowi-Ma’ruf campaign ads from the videotrons.
“The owner of the videotrons must stop displaying the campaign ads for [the Jokowi-Ma’ruf] ticket in these locations as prohibited by KPU Decree No. 175,” Puadi said in a statement.
The disputed videotrons are located on Jl. MH Thamrin, Taman Tugu Tani, Jl. Menteng Raya and Jl. Gunung Sahari Raya in Central Jakarta.
Friday’s ruling followed up a report provided by an individual named Sahroni, as reported by tribunnews.com.
However, the Jakarta Bawaslu rejected Sahroni’s demand for an apology from Jokowi and Ma’ruf to the opposition camp as no evidence has emerged to suggest that the videotrons were owned or funded by the Jokowi-Ma’ruf campaign. (rfa)
