Analysis of the Constitutional Court Decision on a Simultaneous Election in Indonesia

Zainal Arifin Hoesein

Abstract: The recent plan to organize a simultaneous election has resulted pro and cons arguments in Indonesia. The reason is simply because the constitutional court decision that was issued in the act No. 14 / PUU-XI / 2013 on a simultaneous election has not given satisfied explanation toward how the simultaneous election should be conducted and what the legal basis that should be used to support such simultaneous election. This paper aims at discussing the technical aspects that should be provided to implement a simultaneous election and examines political dynamics at the parliament level in formulating the above constitutional court decision on simultaneous election. Throughout this paper, the data used were collected from interview with resource persons and from the literature as well. The study found that the decision made by the constitution court has been in line with the national constitution. However, the detail explanation of the importance of simultaneous election in the constitution was far from clear. The study suggests that if the simultaneous election will be conducted in the year 2019, there are many things that need to be prepared.
