    TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Prabowo-Sandiaga Uno campaign team’s national secretariat (Seknas) leader Muhammad Taufik has shrugged off allegations that the C1 forms found in Menteng, Central Jakarta, on Saturday, originated from Seknas volunteers.

    Taufik called the allegations slander and claimed the Seknas never collected C1 forms from Boyolali. 

    “Seknas never gathered C1 forms for the BPN (Prabowo’s campaign team). During the time of the incident, we were here. I say the news is totally incorrect,” said Taufik at the Prabowo-Sandiaga Seknas headquarters in Menteng, Central Jakarta, on Monday, May 6.

    Jakarta’s general elections supervisory agency (Bawaslu Jakarta) confiscated two sacks filled with thousands of 2019 general elections C1 forms on Saturday,

    “It is confirmed that there are two sacks of C1 forms,” said Bawaslu Jakarta member Burhan when Tempo reached him on Monday.

    According to Burhan, Bawaslu Jakarta is still authenticating the C1 forms. Based on initial observation, the forms originate from a region in Central Java.

    The packages of the forms that were discovered were addressed to a BPN volunteer on Jl. Kertanegara in South Jakarta. 

    In light of the discovery, Taufik maintained his camp's innocence, saying his side was bereft of any access to committing fraud. "We do not have the facilities to do so," he said.
