KPU Jakarta Calls on Campaign Teams to Maintain Peace

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Chairman of the Jakarta General Elections Commission (KPU Jakarta) Sumarno has called on the public to maintain order and peace in the run-up to the second round of the 2017 Jakarta Gubernatorial Election.

According to Sumarno, the voting phase is the most crucial decisive phase for Jakarta residents to cast their votes.

Sumarno guaranteed that KPU Jakarta has prepared necessary logistics for the election up to the polling committee level.

"We want the election to be democratic, honest, fair and peaceful," Sumarno said at the National Monument Complex in Jakarta on Monday, April 17, 2017.

Earlier on Monday, Jakarta Police chief Tito Karnavian, Jakarta Military Commander (Pangdam Jaya) Maj. Gen. Jaswandi held a declaration of peace for the Jakarta Gubernatorial Election. Also attending the declaration were governor candidate number two Basuki Tjahaja Purnama or Ahok and deputy governor candidate number three Sandiaga Salahuddin Uno.

According to Sumarno, peace must be maintained during the election in order to provide freedom for Jakarta residents to vote without intimidations. Sumarno also called on campaign teams of both candidate pairs to maintain order in Jakarta.

Jakarta Elections Supervisory Agency (Bawaslu) head Mimah Susanti pledged that she will safeguard the election. Mimah hopes that public will trust Bawaslu.

"We're calling on the public to maintain peace during the election in Jakarta," Mimah said.
