TRIBUNNEWS.COM, JAKARTA – Chairman Bawaslu RI Bagja’s grace revealed that there are a number of potential problems that often occur during the holding of elections in overseas.

Based on the 2019 election, said Bagja’s gracethe mobile ballot box method and the postal method were considered the most prone to problems.

“If there is a TPS problem in overseas there is usually no problem and usually the problem is the postal method, sometimes students are registered two times so it is possible for them to vote twice, first by post and then (vote) at TPS,” said Bagja’s grace in his statement, Saturday (21/1/2023).

Furthermore, Bagja said that the main problem often occurs in the final voter list (DPT).

In addition, voting using passport or not is a problem.

“Someone’s using it passport and some are not, in Malaysia there are many passport held by employers. So he only uses worker cards, this is a problem,” explained Bagja.

“Even though a passport is a citizenship document that should be carried and cannot be submitted to one person or employer,” he added.

Bagja also said that the mobile ballot box method was also considered prone to having double document problems.

According to him, use passport and worker cards at the time of voting need to be clarified.

“Mobile ballot boxes are also prone to duplicating documents. So which one do you hold? Passport or employee card? This was not clear from PPLN officers,” he said.

Bagja explained that another problem was related to the phenomenon of selective switching.

He said this happened on voting day, however, residents took a holiday to overseas.

“He moved from a polling station in Indonesia to a polling station abroad. It became a separate confusion because voters were not registered at that country’s polling station. We will seek input to find a solution together with the KPU,” he said.
