Abstract

Based on Constitutional Court verdict Number 55 / PUU-XVII / 2019 which was released out on February 26, 2020, ordering the implementation of concurrent general elections. In 2019 was the first experience of holding general elections simultaneously with 5 (five) boxes and 5 (five) types of ballots, namely the presidential election, the election for members of the People’s Representative Council, the Provincial Regional People’s Representative Council, the Regency /City Regional People’s Representative Council, and Regional Representative Council simultaneous nationally. This simultaneous general election system is extremely complicated in the process. It is not only complex but also takes a lot of victims based on experience in 2019 due to the large workload of the organizers. The massiveness and size of this democratic party caused difficulties for the organizers of both the general election commission, the election supervisory body, and the honorary council of election organizers in carrying out their duties. Not to mention, in 2024 the simultaneous general elections in Indonesia will not only be elections at the national level but also include elections at the regional level to elect governors, regents / mayors. Every general elecation event always ends in a dispute over the results of the general election. The Constitutional Court as a state institution that had the authority to settle disputes over the results of general elections (Article 24 C of the 1945 Constitution) will certainly reap the same impact if all disputed results are submitted to the Constitutional Court simultaneously. Meanwhile, the Constitutional Court is the last resort in upholding electoral justice. This paper uses a normative juridical research approach to concepts, theories and legislation. The data used are secondary data with primary, secondary and tertiary legal materials. This paper tries to answer the challenges of concurrent election dispute resolution in 2024 by providing an idea of limiting margins to file a lawsuit, and a dismissal process that involves academics at the local level to handle disputed cases of results in regional head elections both governors, regents or mayors.
