Hasyim also pointed out that the KPU and Bawaslu are scheduled to hold a hearing and a working meeting with the House of Representatives (DPR) and the Government on Wednesday (04/13).

“I hope we can issue KPU regulation regarding the 2024 election stages in the near future to ensure that the 2024 elections will run according to the predetermined schedule,” he added.

Hasyim also asked for support from the public to organize the 2024 general elections and regional elections  in a democratic, transparent, accountable, direct, public, free, confidential, honest and fair manner.
