Marsudi Wahyu Kisworo presented the data as one of two expert witnesses for the General Elections Commission (KPU) as the defendant, with the KPU presenting only a written statement from its second expert witness.

The General Elections Commission (KPU) has decided not to present any fact witnesses during the presidential election litigation at the Constitutional Court (MK), as they believe that the plaintiff’s factual and expert witnesses had not put forward well-prepared arguments to support their claims. The KPU has thus decided to present only expert witnesses.

JAKARTA, KOMPAS — The General Elections Commission (KPU), the defendant in the lawsuit disputing the results of the 2019 presidential election, said it believed that the factual and expert witnesses did not present statements that supported the plaintiff’s (Prabowo Subianto-Sandiaga Uno camp) claims of widespread election fraud. The KPU thus decided not to present any fact witnesses to the court, and presented only expert witnesses.
