Abstract

Manipulation in the administration of elections is incompatible with the spirit of democracy. Bawaslu is a
determining body for upholding democratic values of elections and must carry out the mandate of the law.
The failures in terms of election supervision carried out by Bawaslu in implementing previous election
supervision must be evaluated fundamentally so that future election violations can be avoided and reduced.
Weak control at the time of voting implies the abuse of a person’s voting rights by repeatedly voting, injuring
the voting results. An honest and quality election is achieved if all elements of society, especially the parties
involved in organizing the election, can maintain their credibility, independence and advance the Nation and
the State.
