The General Election Commission (KPU) RI confirmed that the Information Recapitulation System (Sirekap) will still be used for the upcoming 2024 Simultaneous Regional Elections.

The Pilkada launching event heralded the commencement of the stages of the Regional Head Election (Pilkada). The Dompu Pilkada Mascot is a Buffalo. This mascot was selected by the Dompu KPUD after opening a competition last April.

The name Sohibul Iman was proposed because he is considered a figure with adequate capacity. He led PKS during the 2015-2020 period. Under his leadership, PKS saw an increase in votes and seats in the DPR RI. Sohibul was elected three times as a member of the DPR RI and has also served as Deputy Speaker of the DPR RI, and as Vice Rector of Paramadina University. He is also known as a technocrat and a Muslim scholar. „This means he has proven leadership in elevating PKS. He also has a long track record in politics,“ said Mabruri.

After going through several processes and judging, assisted by cultural practitioners and the Dompu Department of Culture and Tourism, the judges finally determined the winners of the 2024 Simultaneous Pilkada Mascot and Jingle Competition in Dompu Regency. The Mascot winner was M. Indermawan, while the Jingle creation was won by Muhammad Rafli.

Hence, the KPU will address these weaknesses, including translating the vote counts from photo forms into numerical data. According to her, this aims to prevent any discrepancies between the vote counts recorded at polling stations and the results read by Sirekap using optical character recognition (OCR) technology.

Usually, the Pilkada is held in two phases, namely the local implementation and the dispute route at the Constitutional Court (MK). „Typically, if the Pilkada is held twice, it means what? That means initially held locally, secondly at the MK,“ said Hadi while giving guidance in the Coordination Meeting of the 2024 concurrent Pilkada organizers in Makassar, South Sulawesi, on June 26th. „That’s why the TNI-Polri must be cautious about safeguarding during the actual Pilkada and during the MK sessions, ensuring the readiness of the TNI-Polri forces to secure the regions,“ he continued. Hadi expects the 2024 Pilkada stages will run smoothly and safely without any obstacles in their implementation. Besides, post-Pilkada security should also be guaranteed. Hadi added that political and legal stability is crucial. He believes, the state and condition of Polhukam stability will significantly affect the Pilkada stages. „We agree that all components of the nation and state need to maintain political, legal, and security stability for the 2024 Pilkada,“ he concluded. Anticipating Conflict Before the 2024 Pilkada Hadi Tjahjanto provided a specific instruction to the TNI, Polri, and BIN for the safety of the 2024 concurrent Pilkada. Hadi advised that regions with possible conflicts should be anticipated before security disturbances arise. He stated this while giving guidance in the Coordination Meeting of the 2024 Pilkada organizers in Makassar, South Sulawesi, on Wednesday. „Specifically TNI, Polri, and BIN. BIN was also present, in the mapping of regions, have to determine regions with possible conflicts to anticipate security disturbances before they occur,“ stated Hadi. „TNI, Polri, and BIN have to be alert, aware beforehand, so that they can mitigate any possible issues,“ he continued. Furthermore, Hadi called for collaboration from local governments in supporting the 2024 Pilkada organization. If local governments do not facilitate, the simultaneous Pilkada will certainly be hindered. „Therefore, total synergy can guarantee the successful implementation of the 2024 concurrent Pilkada,“ he stated. Hadi urged local governments to take important measures, including avoiding overlaps between the central and local governments.

„Ma Nggini, Ma Taroa, Ma Nggari are the moral foundations of the 2024 Pilkada implementation in Dompu, rooted in local wisdom to achieve the sovereignty of the people,“ said Arif during the Pilkada launching event.

It is known that the survey was conducted during the period of June 13-20, 2024. The survey population includes all Indonesian citizens in Central Sulawesi who have the right to vote in the general election, i.e., those who are 17 years old or older, or are already married when the survey was conducted. Sample selection was done using the multistage random sampling method. The survey sample size was 1,200 people. Assuming a simple random sampling method, the sample size of 1,200 respondents has a margin of error (MoE) of ± 2.9% at a 95% confidence level. The sample was proportionally distributed across all districts/cities in Central Sulawesi.

**PKS Does Not Want to Be Just a Ronin** Political analyst Adi Prayitno believes that PKS’s decision to nominate its cadre is understandable, given that in the 2017 Jakarta Pilkada, PKS could only propose candidates from other parties. „Even the deputy gubernatorial position left by Sandiaga Uno, which should have been PKS’s share, was also willingly given to Gerindra,“ stated Adi. Therefore, Adi assesses that in this Jakarta Pilkada, PKS does not want to continue being a supporter of other parties‘ cadres. PKS wants to be a deciding party. Especially with the label as the winner of the legislative elections in Jakarta. „As the winning party in the legislative elections, PKS certainly does not want to continue being a ronin. PKS does not want to be merely political firewood for proposing candidates, but to have a PKS cadre as governor or deputy governor,“ said Adi. „This time, PKS wants to appear as a leader candidate. As the main actor in winning, and as a figure who can secure Jakarta 1 or Jakarta 2. That’s the point,“ said Adi.
