Scholars fully support the decision of the Constitutional Court (MK) in the 2024 General Election results dispute trial and consider that the decision deserves legitimacy.

Indeed, the Constitutional Court (MK) has officially issued its decision regarding the final outcome of the lawsuit in the 2024 General Election dispute trial, which as good citizens, all people in Indonesia should of course be able to accept and fully support this decision.

As one of the frontliners in providing awareness to the public about how to be good citizens, intellectuals have shown an attitude that is very worthy of being a model, namely by supporting the Constitutional Court’s decision in the 2024 election dispute trial.

For your information, the Constitutional Court has officially rejected the request to dispute the results of the 2024 Presidential and Vice Presidential Election (Pilpres) from the candidate pair team (Paslon) Anies Baswedan-Muhaimin Iskandar and also Ganjar Pranowo-Mahfud MD.

Then, the Constitutional Court considered the arguments from Anies and Cak Imin who requested that candidate pair Prabowo Subianto-Gibran Rakabuming Raka be disqualified from the 2024 political contest.

Strictly speaking, in all its considerations, the Constitutional Court then stated that the argument for disqualifying the Prabowo-Gibran candidate pair turned out to be completely groundless according to law.

Moreover, in fact, the election organizers, namely the General Election Commission (KPU) as the respondent in the trial, have followed all the rules in following up on the Constitutional Court’s decision which changed the registration requirements for Presidential and Vice Presidential Candidates (Presidential and Vice Presidential Candidates).

Therefore, the Constitutional Court stated that the argument which assumes that there was nepotism and promiscuity from the President of the Republic of Indonesia (RI), Joko Widodo (Jokowi) regarding the emergence of the Constitutional Court’s decision which changed the age requirements for presidential and vice-presidential candidates is completely groundless according to law.

Apart from that, absolutely no party stated that they had any objections after the appointment of the Prabowo-Gibran presidential candidate and vice presidential candidate. Furthermore, there is also no evidence of a form of cawe-cawe from the Head of State as argued by the Anies-Muhaimin team in their petition.

So, the Vice President of the Republic of Indonesia (Wapres RI), KH. Ma’ruf Amin believes that the Constitutional Court itself has been very open in holding lawsuit hearings regarding disputes over the results of the 2024 Presidential Election, in other words, the decision that the MK issued is valid.

Spokesperson for the Vice President, Masduki Baidlowi, said that the MK’s openness was very visible in the amicus curiae or ‘friend of the court’, which enabled many national figures and intellectuals to express their opinions and then became material for consideration by the Constitutional Justices in drafting their decisions.

Thus, it is clear that the Constitutional Court’s decision is legitimate because it is in accordance with the opinions of intellectuals and national figures and there is no other reason to reject the decision.

The public, especially the parties involved in the dispute, should be able to accept all of the Constitutional Court’s decisions, because all verdicts are certainly the best decisions.

When all parties are able to continue to maintain national harmony and unity, namely one of the steps is to accept it with grace and respect for whatever decision the Constitutional Court makes, then this attitude is very important in order to make the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia (NKRI) more advanced and prosperous.

Because, harmony and unity of all elements of the nation from various backgrounds, even though they previously had differences of opinion or views, is a major prerequisite for a nation to continue to move towards achieving progress.

On the other hand, the Acting Governor of East Java (Jatim), Adhy Karyono, also opened his voice in response to the Constitutional Court’s decision to reject the lawsuit against the 2024 presidential election results from the Anies-Muhaimin and Ganjar-Mahfud camps.

Because the decision has been officially announced, the next best step for all people in the country is to simply accept and fully support the decision. Because with this attitude of acceptance, all matters of interest will be eliminated and this nation can focus on continuing its progress in the future.

Meanwhile, Academic from Trunojoyo Madura University, East Java, Surokim Abdussalam emphasized that the decision on the General Election Results Dispute (PHPU), namely the Presidential Election (Pilpres) dispute is in accordance with the principle of integrity of the Constitutional Court.

So far, the entire community continues to wait for the results of the Constitutional Court’s decision as the final gatekeeper for the constitution. This also makes academics or intellectuals consider that the judges of the Constitutional Court clearly have high integrity.

How can all the results of the decision of the Constitutional Court (MK) regarding the 2024 General Election (Pemilu) dispute trial be legally legitimate and final and cannot be contested? Moreover, intellectuals and national figures also fully support the results of this decision, because it is the best attitude that society must take at this time for the future progress of the nation.
