"If it is still being given, how are you doing? So we are determined to eradicate corruption in a genuine, comprehensive way," he continued.
Previously, Bawaslu passed five former corrupts to 2019 candidates, from Aceh, North Toraja, North Sulawesi, Pare-Pare, Rembang and Bulukumba.
During the bacalegistration period, the five former corrupts were declared ineligible by the KPU (TMS).
In response to the decision of the KPU, these five persons filed a dispute about the registration with the Bawaslu and the local Panwaslu. The result of the dispute states that they are all eligible (MS).
Bawaslu has former corruption prisoners as bacaleg because they are guided by the electoral law and not by PKPU number 20 of 2018.
The electoral law does not prohibit former ex-prisoners from becoming legislative candidates.
