(4/28/2013)

The State News Agency Antara confirms that the Bali Election Commission (KPU-Bali) have made a decision that the gubernatorial elections set for May 15, 2013 can proceed according to schedule, despite protest over the presences of the PDIP’s symbol the ballot.

KPU-Bali’s chairman, Ketut Sukawati Lanang Putra Perbawa told the press on Saturday, April 27, 2013, following an emergency plenary session of the Commission, “The ballots that will be used (in the election) are the ballot that have been printed and distributed to the regencies and municipalities.”

He said the decision was made based on the desire to see the election proceed as scheduled, Lanang added, “All parties are urged to guard security, peace and good order in Bali.”

The decision to use the current ballots was made over objections from the incumbent candidate Made Mangku Pastika and was, according to the KPU-Bali,  based on a careful review of the election law and after consulting with the National Election Commission (KPU-Indonesia) in Jakarta.

As reported earlier by Balidisocvery.com, the ballots prepared for the May 15 election in Bali includes the logo of the Indonesian Party for Democratic Study (PDIP) in addition to the pictures and names of that party's two candidates Anak Agung Ngurah Puspayoga and Dewa Nyoman Sukrawan.

Meanwhile the official election regulations only allow the names, party number and pictures of the candidates to appear on the ballot.

Meanwhile, the chairman of the Bali Election Supervisory Committee (Panwaslu Bali), Made Wena, has called on all parties involved with the coming elections in Bali to accept the decision of the KPU-Bali in order that the democratic process can continue.
