Jakarta (Insiderstories) – Prabowo Subianto – Sandiaga Salahuddin Uno’ legal team submitted additional proofs to reinforce their appeal to the Constitutional Court on the result of the 2019 presidential election.
Chief of Subianto – Uno legal team Bambang Widjoyanto, said some of the additional materials include videos, written documents, such as the C1 tally forms, and other contents. The team’ appeals are based on qualitative and quantitative arguments, he added, to allege Joko Widodo – Ma’ruf Amin ticket conducted a structural, systematic, and massive electoral fraud in numerous examples of power abuse and the misuse of state resources.
“By abusing his (Widodo) position as the incumbent president, the number 01 candidates have worn out all resources. Everything ostensibly looked legal and common, but once we dig deeper, we will see that they were trying to influence the people to win the 2019 election,” Widjoyanto said in an official statement.
He added, five forms of electoral fraud has collected by his team such as misuse of State budget and government programs, misuse of bureaucracy and State Own Enterprises, police and intelligence community’ partisanship, limitations on press and media freedom, and discriminatory legal enforcement.
“Structural, systematic, and massive electoral fraud is a fundamental violation of the honest and fair election prescribed in Article 22E Paragraph 1 of the 1945 constitutional,” said Widjoyanto.
Furthermore, he explained that the team’ quantitative arguments are based on illegal acts of adding and suppressing the total of votes casted for the candidate. This was found throughout all 34 provinces in Indonesia but a larger proportion happened in Java.
Such manipulation of casted votes were supported by a disputed and anomalous finals voters list, forging C1 tally forms, and inputting incorrect data. Widjoyanto believeed that his team will win the court dispute with strong documents and witnesses to support their quantitative arguments.
While, Chief Justice of the Constitutional Court Anwar Usman said, his party was ready to hold a hearing on the dispute over the results of the 2019 Presidential Election. He stated, the Constitutional Court would register the dispute over the results today.
The Constitutional Court will hold the inaugural session of the dispute over the results of the presidential election after the registration of the case on June 14. The completion time of the evidentiary hearing is 14 working days and scheduled to decide on the dispute over the results of the presidential election on June 28.
The preliminary session will be filled with submission of the petitioner’ request and the respondent’s answer.
“Because the trial requires a very short time, 14 days must have been completed since it was registered, so we have to be fit and healthy. If special preparation related to regulatory matters and so on, it is ready,” said Usman.
The National Winning Body of Subianto – Uno has rejected the results of the national recapitulation conducted by the General Election Commission. Based on the results of the agency recapitulation, the opposition pair lost the votes from Widodo – Amin pair.
