Abstract

The corona case in Southeast Sulawesi requiring political movements of each candidate to have a special strategy that breaks social restrictions would be more beneficial for detainees. Exclusion of incumbent candidates is also intended to likely utilize the position of regional head amid the social situation affected by the Pandemic touching various aspects of people’s lives including the political side. Amid pandemic situation engulfing along with the political situation, incumbent candidates who are also regional heads “should” prioritize the management of people affected by the plague rather than political interests. Based on research, several regional heads who will also go forward as incumbent candidates are actively and massively involved in attracting public sympathy through distributing basic aid including masks and various kinds of personal protective equipment leading the two regional heads to be suspected of doing violation by Bawaslu. The subjects and informants in this study were the Chairperson of the Southeast Sulawesi Province Bawaslu, the head of East Kolaka Bawaslu and the Konawe Islands, the Regional Head Candidate and the online media covering the news. Data Sources used consisted of: (a) Primary Data constituting the data source directly obtained by the researcher directly from the source of the study by conducting interviews with predetermined informants, and (b) Secondary Data, a data source that indirectly provides data to researchers.
