  • TEMPO.CO, JakartaElection Commission (KPU) will announce the elected presidential and vice presidential candidate in the next three days after Constitutional Court (MK) delivers the ruling on Thursday, June 27. The announcement will be held if MK denies the appeal filed by Prabowo Subianto - Sandiaga Uno.

    “[It will be] no longer than three days after the ruling delivery. The next step is the determination of elected candidates. KPU will set the date, but for sure, within three days ahead at maximum,” said the agency commissioner Hasyim Asy’ari in Jakarta, Wednesday, June 26.

    Hasyim explained if the court denies all plaintiff’s appeals, his agency will make the announcement earlier on Friday, June 28 or Saturday, June 29 through a public plenary meeting by inviting various parties, election participants, political parties, community organizations, media, and state representatives.

    However, if MK favors the demand related to the acquisition of the vote, such as re-election, the KPU cannot announce the victor yet, Hasyim added.

    As reported earlier, MK expedites the schedule of the ruling on presidential election dispute case on Thursday, June 27, from initially slated to take place Friday, June 28.
