The General Elections Commission (KPU) is preparing to face more than a hundred regional election disputes filed at the Constitutional Court last month, as the court aims to settle all election-related cases by March. KPU Hasyim Asy’ari said the commission had ordered its regional offices to prepare for trial by holding coordination meetings and technical courses. “During the meetings, we cover related regulations on election disputes at the Constitutional Court, advocacy strategies as well as evidence verification methods during online and offline hearings, among other topics,” Hasyim said on Jan. 18 as quoted by kompas.com. The Constitutional Court will kick off preliminary hearings for election disputes on Tuesday, with plaintiffs scheduled to deliver their principal pleadings.
