Abstract


The judgement of the Constitutional Court (MK) Number 53/PUU-XV/2017 oblige all political parties participating in the 2019 general election both established parties or new ones to comply to the re-verification process. Political parties participating in the 2019 General Election must adhere to a verification starting by completing a Political Party Information System (SIPOL). The issue started when the General Election Supervisory Agency (Bawaslu) decided that the SIPOL is not the decisive factor to decide whether a political party passed or failed the administration screening, resulting in the General Election Committee (KPU) to issue a Decision Letter regarding Political Parties participating in the 2019 General Election after the decision of the Bawaslu RI. After the KPU also issued SK Number 58/PL.01.1/Kpt/03/KPU/II/2018 regarding Political Parties participating in the 2019 General Election provoked the political parties stated to fail to become participants in the General Election, to submit complaint through the administrative court. The problem became more entangled when parties winning the complaint in the administrative court reported the KPU commissioners stating to conduct efforts of a judicial review (PK). This paper intents by normative approach to provide an evaluation on the verification process of political parties participating in the 2019 General Election and provide input on the efforts to improve the political parties’ verification process in the future.
