The official website of the Constitutional Court (MK) recorded that until Friday at 9:40 a.m. local time, a total of 226 cases concerning dispute over the 2019 Election results had been filed.

Of the 226 cases filed, nine are related to the disputed results of the Regional Representatives Council (DPD) election, while the rest are cases challenging the election results for the House of Representaties (DPR RI) and Regional House of Representatives (DPRD).

Two legislative dispute cases were registered beyond the deadline set on Friday (May 24) at 1:46 WIB, specifically to contest the results of legislative elections in the DPR RI/DPRD submitted from the Electoral District of North Maluku, which was distributed at 1:50 WIB, as well as from the DKI Jakarta Electoral District registered at 9:06 WIB.

Several applicants had recently registered, and some had just sought consultations on the requirements to file applications.

MK spokesman Fajar Laksono had earlier highlighted the importance of making a note of the deadline for registration, as it would be a consideration for constitutional justices to continue the examination of the case or not.
