Makassar, KOMPAS - The election logistics for Kepulauan Sangkarrang district in Makassar, South Sulawesi, has been returned to the Makassar General Election Commission warehouse as it has not been sealed. The Makassar General Election Commission admitted to a procedural mistake.

This logistics was dispatched to Barrang Lompo Island, the capital of Kepulauan Sangkarrang District, on Sunday (11/2/2024), from Paotere Port, Makassar. Departing amidst bad weather and being delayed twice, the ship arrived on Sunday afternoon. However, on Sunday night, the ship returned to Makassar with the logistics. Afterwards, the logistics were returned to the warehouse.

"Logistics are being returned because what has not been packed must be packed first and then redistributed today. Indeed, (election logistics) have not been sealed because they have not been packed. "That's why we re-packed it, then sealed it," said Muh Abdi Goncing, member of the Makassar City KPU, Social Education, Education and Human Resources Division, Monday (12/2/2024).

This logistics carrier ship was finally departed on Monday evening towards Barrang Lompo Island. The ship carried logistics amidst heavy rain and strong winds that occurred in Makassar since noon.

Officials checked a truck containing logistics at the Paotere Port in Makassar on Sunday (11/2/2024). The logistics will be distributed to islands in the Sangkarrang Islands District, Makassar.

In the future, logistics from Barrang Lompo Island will be organized and distributed to other islands within this district. The Kepulauan Sangkarrang district is the only district in Makassar that is located on an island. Its territory consists of several islands scattered across Spermonde Archipelago in the Strait of Makassar.

In this district, there are three sub-districts. There are 41 polling stations with a fixed list of voters of 10,261 people. Under normal weather conditions, traveling by wooden boat from Paotere Port to the islands in this district can take up to two hours.

One day earlier, on the day of departure on Sunday, the Chairman of the Makassar Election Commission, Hambaliie, stated that the ballot boxes are being transported in an unassembled condition with the consideration that they do not take up space on the ship.

"So, later, after arriving at Barrang Lompo, the electoral logistics will be assembled first and then distributed to the surrounding islands," he said.

The ship crew is organizing the logistics of the election into the ship's hold at Paotere Port, Makassar, Sunday (11/2/2024). Next, the logistics will be distributed to the islands in the Sangkarrang Islands District, Makassar.
