Prabowo team says the mistake in the ballot entry was not normal.

REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA -- The Jakarta campaign team of Prabowo Subianto (BPP DKI) will report the General Election Commission (KPU) and the East Jakarta KPU office to the Honorary Council of Election Executors (DKPP). They will file a report against a mistake in the ballot entry during the ballot counting result (C1 Form) at Polling Station (TPS) No 93 located in Bidara Cina, Jatinegara Sub-district, East Jakarta.

"The mistake in the ballot entry was not normal and it was obviously a deliberate attempt to reduce the number of votes cast for presidential candidate Prabowo Subianto," Muhamad Taufik, chairman of the BPP DKI, said here on Friday.

Taufik explained, based on data from the scanned C1 Form, the incumbent President Joko Widodo (Jokowi)-Ma''ruf Amin pair received 47 votes, while the contender Prabowo Subianto-Sandiaga Uno pair got 162. But based on data from the ballot entry conducted by KPU, the votes for the Jokowi-Ma''ruf jumped to 180, and for Prabowo-Sandiaga reduced to 56.

"This is an election violation. We will report it to the DKPP and the police," Taufik said in a press statement.

The ballot entry has put Prabowo and Sandiaga at a disadvantage, while KPU should have been neutral, and not partial, according to him.

"This is certainly a violation that cannot be tolerated," he noted.

If the mistake was not discovered, KPU would have been successful in marking up the number of votes for Jokowi, he remarked.

"KPU dared to do this. For me, the excuse by KPS that the ballot entry mistake was a result of human error is unacceptable. This is a deliberate act, and we will report it to the DKPP and the police," Taufik, chairman of the Gerindra Party''s Jakarta branch and deputy speaker of the Jakarta Legislative Council (DPRD Jakarta), said.

Indonesia organized simultaneous legislative and presidential elections across the country on April 17, 2019. With a total of over 192 million eligible voters, the election in the world''s largest archipelagic nation is considered the biggest and the most complex in the world.
