Abstract

Background: COVID-19 has brought fundamental changes to various public sectors, one of which is the implementation of the 2020 simultaneous regional head elections in Indonesia. Objectives: The purpose of this article is to analyze the dynamic capabilities of the KPU from a dynamic governance perspective in the implementation of the 2020 elections in Indonesia. Methods: This article uses data sources from the literature review and secondary data related to the organization of Elections in Indonesia which have been published through social media youtube and the official website of the institutions, namely on DPR, KPU, Ministry of Home Affairs, and BNPB accounts during March-August 2020. Result: KPU’s dynamic capabilities in organizing the election are shown with the capacity of thinking ahead, thinking again, and thinking across in response to the threat of the Covid-19 pandemic. Thinking ahead can be seen from the KPU’s efforts to place the principle of the safety of organizers and voters in the Election to prevent the emergence of new clusters of the spread of Covid-19. Thinking again is shown by reviewing, revising, and making new policies and programs in the implementation of the 2020 elections. Thinking across is shown by the KPU’s willingness to learn from other countries having successfully held Pilkada in the era of the Covid-19 pandemic to be used as a basis for policy innovation formulation.
