BANDUNG- Conflict in every election of Regional Head (Pilkada) has the potential to occur. However, the West Java Election Commission (KPU) hopes that it will not happen.
Commissioner of the Election Commission (KPU) West Java Province, Nina Yuningsih admitted optimistic the implementation of elections in West Java went smoothly and without conflict. However, this condition needs synergy with the police.
This was stated by the Commissioner of Human Resources Division and Public Participation Relations of KPU Jabar, Nina Yuningsih in front of the participants of West Java Police Law Workshop related to the security of elections in 2018 in Herman's Hall, West Java Police, Tuesday (19/12/2017).
Nina's optimism is quite groundless, because in West Java, there has been no elections that ended anarchist. This is different from other regions, the elections ended with the burning of the KPU office even colored the hostage of commissioner members.
"Once again we do not want such cases to occur in West Java," Nina said.
He explained, about the difference in the spread of conflict from election to elections and even elections. In the old order and the new order, the elected leaders at that time were appointed from the center or elected members of the DPRD, so the conflicts only occurred in the ranks of the board members.
"It is now directly elected by the people so that the conflict is at the community level and equally distributed," Nina added.
With such optimism, West Java KPU is identifying potentials that might trigger conflict. Nina mentioned several points, among them the highest DPT problem in Indonesia.
"Our DPT is more than American voters, especially with our neighboring countries, that is many times over," he concluded. (MAT)
