The Jakarta General Elections Commission (KPUD Jakarta) and representatives of the city's three gubernatorial candidate pairs will discuss on Wednesday the schedule for the campaign period, which will run from Oct. 28 to Feb. 11, prior to the Jakarta election on Feb. 15, 2017.
The commission will set the schedule for campaign rallies, which can be attended by up to 100,000 people. Each pair is permitted to hold two rallies during the campaign period, said KPUD Jakarta commissioner Dahliah Umar in Jakarta on Tuesday as reported by kompas.com.
“We only arrange the schedule for the public campaign rallies, while other campaign events are not scheduled,” said Dahliah, referring to General Elections Commission (KPU) Regulation No. 12/2016 on election campaigns.
Meanwhile, limited meetings that are attended by fewer than 2,000 people and face-to- face campaign events do not require set schedules by KPUD Jakarta, but campaign teams are required to reports their respective schedules and the campaign programs to the commission, she added.
With regard to public campaign rallies, pairs might be allowed to either organize campaign rallies on the same day, but in different municipalities or each pair will be required to organize campaign rallies on different days, Dahliah said.
“The schedule is needed because rallies may overlap. To anticipate that, we may need to arrange specific spots for each pair to organize their campaign rallies,” she added. (bbn)
