BANDUNG - Vice Governor of West Java Deddy Mizwar ensured that all of the problems occurred ahead of the elections in three regional area of West Java have come to the solution.
The arising problems, said Deddy, are for example happened in Bekasi Regency. "In this regency, there are 45.165 locals who have the voting rights, but they haven't got their e-KTP (electronic Residential Identity Card)," he explained during the Meetings of Committee I DPD RI and West Java Provincial Government with regard to the Simultaneous Regional Elections 2017 in West Java at Sanggabuana Room, Sate Building, Diponegoro Street, Bandung City, on Tuesday (02/14/2017).
However, the local government through the Department of Demography and Civil Registry (Disdukcapil) has provided reference letters (suket) which have been handed over to the local General Commission Election (KPU).
"For those who haven't got e-KTP, this problem can be solved by making a reference letter. Any violations are under the authority of Elections Supervisory Agency (Bawaslu). The types of violations also need to be clarified. Regarding the security, it is the authority of the Police Force," Deddy said.
Member of DPD RI Eni Sumarni said that ahead of the elections of mayor/regent in 2017 in West Java tomorrow, on Wednesday (02/15/2017), there has not been found any significant problem. Besides, there will be only three cities/regencies which consist of two cities and regency that will hold the Regional Election. They are Bekasi Regency, Cimahi City, and Tasikmalaya City.
