REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA — Election Supervisory Board (Bawaslu) identified 202 lawmaker candidates have corruption case background. On Tuesday (July 31) night, General Election Commission (KPU) officially closed the chance for political parties to replace their legislative candidates names who did not meet the registration requirements.

“There are 202 legislative candidates at level Regional Legislative Council (DPRD) identified as former corruption convicts,” said Bawaslu member, Fritz Edward Siregar on Wednesday (Aug 1).

According to Fritz, ex-graft prisoners registering to be lawmaker candidate came from 12 provinces, 97 regencies, and 19 cities in Indonesia. Previously, Bawaslu found 223 legislative candidates identified as former corruption convicts.

“After re-validation, the figure shrinks to 202 people,” Fritz explained.

Fritz said Bawaslu has not been able to confirm yet, whether 202 legislative candidates names have been replaced by their political parties.

Meanwhile, KPU chairman Arief Budiman said 16 political parties have submitted registration file of lawmaker candidates that has been fixed. Among the improvements are administrative completeness, such as legalization of diplomas, health requirements, and some documents of personal data.

Arief said the validity check will be done from August 1 to August 7. Once completed, KPU will hold a meeting to set the list of temporary lawmaker candidates.
