Abstract

Legislative candidates currently face large costs due to direct legislative election. Therefore, only candidates with strong finances have the opportunity to nominate. The situation causes the appearance of less qualified candidates. Instead of building knowledge, ability, and integrity, candidates only focus on building their financial strength. Legislative election violations may occur due to intentional elements or due to negligence. Anyone can commit election violations. Everyone has the potential to become perpetrators of election violations. As an anticipation, Law number 7 of 2017 on General Elections has regulated the election at every stage in the form of obligations and prohibitions with additional sanctions. To date, the legal sanctions are only about removal of names from nominations. No legal action has been taken regarding this issue. On the other hand, law enforcement officers also do not understand the application of material legal rules in the field of criminal acts related to general elections.
