Elections are an important moment in the democratic life of a country. However, after a general election, political tensions often arise which can threaten security stability. One form of tension that often appears in public is mass demonstrations.

Although the right to demonstrate is guaranteed in a democratic system, uncontrolled demonstrations can endanger the security and stability of the country. Therefore, rejection of demonstrations from all parties is a crucial step to maintain security stability, especially after the election.

Although demonstrations are a constitutional right guaranteed in a democratic system, uncontrolled demonstrations can threaten the stability and security of the country. Therefore, it is important for the government and society to reject demonstrations that have the potential to disrupt post-election security stability. This article will discuss why rejecting demonstrations is an important step in maintaining post-election security stability.

One of the main reasons for opposing post-election demonstrations is to prevent disruption to public order. Large-scale demonstrations are often the breaking point of ongoing political tensions. Thousands of people gathering on city streets to voice their opinions has great potential to cause chaos, unrest and even violence.

This not only endangers the safety of civilians, but can also disrupt people’s economic and social activities. In this context, rejection of demonstrations is an important step to prevent disruption to public order.

It is known that the Republic of Indonesia KPU building and the Republic of Indonesia DPR were the targets of demonstrations from various elements of society. The demonstration took place after the voting stage for the 2024 General Election which was held on February 14. The demonstration was related to allegations of election fraud and calls for the DPR to roll out the right to inquiry.

This demonstration was carried out by a mass demonstration that rejected the results of the 2024 General Election (Pemilu) and encouraged the use of the Right to Inquiry in front of the Indonesian DPR Building, Senayan. they confirmed that they would come again to guard the DPR RI’s Inquiry Rights.

Coordinating Minister for Politics, Law and Security (Menko Polhukam) Hadi Tjahjanto, claims that conditions in the country after the 2024 elections remain safe, the recent wave of demonstrations related to the elections are only small ripples. Hadi Tjahjanto, said that conditions in the community were peaceful and safe, this he found out when he visited directly and met the community.
Demonstrations are permitted, however, these demonstrations are prone to being influenced by interest groups. Therefore, rejecting demonstrations is an important step to build a post-election process of reconciliation and reunification of society. By rejecting demonstrations, all parties can demonstrate their commitment to finding a peaceful solution and rebuilding trust between various political groups.

Rejecting demonstrations is also a way to respect the ongoing democratic process. Elections are the main means by which citizens can channel their political aspirations peacefully. However, once the election is over, it is important for all parties to respect the results, even if they do not agree with them. Rejecting demonstrations is a step to show that all parties are ready to respect the democratic process and work together to build a better future.

By rejecting demonstrations and choosing to communicate peacefully, all parties can foster a culture of dialogue and compromise that is essential to building an inclusive and sustainable society.

The call to maintain a conducive situation after the election was also voiced by students. In this case, the Student Executive Council (Dema) of State Islamic Universities (PTKIN) throughout Indonesia held a public discussion taking place in the South Jakarta area. The activity was entitled ‘Strengthening Post-Election Moderation to Achieve National Harmony’.

The event was led by the Coordinator of the Indonesian DEMA PTKIN Center, M Syahrus Sobirin, who said that the discussion was held to maintain conduciveness in the country. According to him, this is also in order to provide political education to fellow students and the community. Because society, which is now dominated by Gen Z and millennials, must be more sensitive to today’s political situation. The dynamics of every election always involve accusations of fraud by the losing party. Political dynamics like this trigger divisions in society which then disrupt security stability in the regions.

Coordinator of the Indonesian DEMA PTKIN Center, M Syahrus Sobirin, said that the recently popular questionnaire rights had a political tinge considering that the gimmicks and motives presented did not represent voter objectivity. This right to inquiry is resistant to the electoral interests of political elites alone. Therefore, all elements of the student body should work together to talk about community welfare again in order to realize harmony in the Republic of Indonesia.

In maintaining post-election security stability, rejecting potentially disruptive demonstrations is an important step. This does not mean ignoring citizens’ rights to voice their opinions, but rather is an effort to prevent disruption to public order, escalation of political conflicts, and the post-election recovery process. By prioritizing dialogue, reconciliation and peaceful political participation, a country can strengthen the foundations of its democracy and create an environment conducive to mutual progress.
