The important role of the community is really needed to be able to continue to maintain peace and also unity in holding the democratic election party in 2024.
Kapolresta Mamuju, Kombes Pol Iskandar invites all elements of society to be able to jointly be able to create a democratic General Election (Election) event in the coming 2024 with full of peace. To be able to move towards this, of course it should also be emphasized how important it is to be able to continue to maintain peace and also unity in the democratic process in Indonesia.
Therefore, all elements of society should be able to continue to respect each other when there are differences of opinion. The reason is, indeed Indonesia itself is a country that has very diverse backgrounds in society that are different from each other and are basically not the same as one another.
For this reason, efforts to be able to respect each other and increase tolerance are very important things to do. Not only because the Indonesian nation is a country that has extraordinary diversity in its people, which are different from each other in terms of ethnicity, religion, race and between groups, but with efforts to respect each other we can also participate in upholding democratic values that are exist in the Motherland.
The reason is, this country also adheres to a democratic system, so of course differences can appear on the surface without any pressure from each other and it is hoped that all parties can accept these differences gracefully.
Of course, with all these efforts it is also hoped that the implementation of the election democratic party can run in a very orderly, safe manner and can also be free from all forms of violence that exist.
The role of all parties is indeed very important and cannot be denied, including all election participants, to political parties (Parpol) and election organizers to be able to ensure each other that the election process can be carried out fairly and transparently.
In addition, all security forces from joint personnel including the Indonesian National Armed Forces (TNI), the Indonesian National Police (Polri) and the State Intelligence Agency (BIN) continue to ensure that the entire election process runs smoothly, namely carrying out their duties fully. professionalism as well as neutrality, especially in order to be able to ensure security during the election period.
The invitation to be able to work together and integrate and coordinate with each other, namely in order to be able to continue to maintain social stability and also security in all Indonesian people in undergoing elections as a manifestation of the maturity of democracy in the country.
In an effort to create a peaceful election, it is also important for all parties to be able to hold various kinds of meetings with many related parties, including community leaders, as well as leaders of political parties and other stakeholders.
The purpose of this meeting is to be able to continue to establish good communication, because it is very important to continue to maintain a very conducive situation and atmosphere, starting from the eve of the election event to during the election process. Not only that, but it is also very important to establish this communication in order to be able to listen to all inputs and aspirations from various parties so that they can be more comprehensive in promoting these efforts.
All people in Indonesia should also be able to continue to protect themselves so that they are not easily provoked by various kinds of issues that are circulating on various social media, especially nowadays, where making issues becomes very easy with technological advances, everyone is able and able to have their respective media so it is very important to be able to digest various kinds of incoming information so that you are not easily influenced by the spread of fake news or hoaxes that occur.
The many issues on social media certainly have the potential to divide unity and harmony between people in the country. For this reason, it is very important to be able to continue to prioritize dialogue and also respect each other and find the best solution for the common interest.
Another role of all elements of society is to be active and involved in overseeing how the election is going and also being expected to be able to report all forms of violations if violations are found in the community.
The running of the election democratic party in 2024 so that it can continue to run peacefully and continue to uphold unity so that unity cannot be separated from how important the role of all elements of society in Indonesia is, so that it cannot be borne only by certain parties.
