Today, August 1, 2022, the General Election Commission of the Republic of Indonesia opens registration for political parties that are candidates for the 2024 general election. On this first day, 9 political parties registered with the General Election Commission.

The regulation governing the registration of candidates for election participants is Law Number 7 of 2017 concerning the Implementation of General Elections. The Election Law stipulates that the registration of candidates for election contestants begins 18 months before the election day.

To regulate the stages of how political parties register as election participants. The General Election Commission regulates in two regulations. First, the General Election Commission Regulation Number 3 of 2022 concerning the Stages of the 2024 Simultaneous Election. The second legal basis is the General Election Commission Regulation Number 4 of 2022 concerning the technicalities of political parties registering as candidates for election participants, procedures for verifying the completeness of political party administration and determination election participants.

Political parties that register with the General Election Commission to participate in the election on the first day are:



Prosperous Justice Party

Initially, this party used the name of the justice party and eventually changed the name of the party to the Prosperous Justice Party. The Prosperous Justice Party was formed and launched on April 20, 1988 on the basis of strength derived from the cadre of members. At this time, the map of the strength of the Prosperous Justice Party is seen in the number of seats in parliament, the Prosperous Justice Party has 55 seats out of 575 parliamentary seats.

With that power, the Prosperous Justice Party registered as a candidate for election contestants. The General Elections Commission examines the administration of the Prosperous Justice Party. The decision of the General Elections Commission stated that the files from the Prosperous Justice Party were declared complete. The problem is seen in the 'Political Party Information System' which is experiencing network problems. However, the General Elections Commission still received registration documents from the Prosperous Justice Party.

Another technical problem is that the Prosperous Justice Party waited a long time to receive a signature from the General Elections Commission leadership in the Official Report on the registration of the Prosperous Justice Party. Although the Prosperous Justice Party waited a little longer, in the end the Prosperous Justice Party received the document regarding the Minutes.



Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle

The Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle is the party that the current President, Mr. Joko Widodo. The Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle is led by the Fifth President, Megawati Soekarno Putri, who is the daughter of the First President of Indonesia, Mr. Sukarno.

Initially, the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle came from the Indonesian Justice Party which was founded on January 10, 1973. Later, the Justice Party changed its name to the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle since February 15, 1999, which used the bull as the party logo.

The strength of the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle in parliament is 128 seats out of the 575 seats in the House of Representatives. The strength of the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle in parliament is part of the power of the President who has led for two terms. The Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle won two elections, namely in 2014 and the 2019 election.

At the time the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle registered as a candidate for election participants today. Again, the server of the 'Political Party Information System' had an error. Technical problems with the application system belonging to the General Elections Commission interfere with the registration process of candidates for election participants.

The Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle registered itself by showing documents regarding management in 34 provinces, and regional administrators in 514 districts/cities, with sub-district administrators in 6767 sub-districts throughout Indonesia. Members of the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle consist of 477724 members/party cadres.



Justice and Unity Party

The Justice and Unity Party was established on January 15, 1999 which changed its name to the Indonesian Justice and Unity Party on September 2, 2002 and returned to its initial name, namely the Justice and Unity Party on September 2, 2021. The Justice and Unity Party is a party that does not have seats in parliament means that the Justice and Unity Party does not have a single member in the people's legislature.



Reform Party

The Reform Party was founded on May 27, 2000 and has never been a participant in the general election. The Reform Party has always failed to meet administrative requirements. The Reform Party experienced many problems in inputting data in the 'Political Party Information System' belonging to the General Elections Commission. Information from the General Elections Commission, the Reform Party does not understand the General Election Commission Regulation Number 4 of 2022.



Prosperous Fair People's Party

The Adil Makmur People's Party was formed on June 1, 2021 and is a new party in Indonesia. On this day, the People's Party of the Adil Makmur Party only submitted registration documents as candidates for election participants symbolically. The General Elections Commission checks the registration documents, statement letters, and recap of the management of the membership of women's representatives. At this time, the Adil Makmur People's Party has not yet met the requirements for sub-district administration.



Indonesian Unity Party

The United Indonesia Party, known as the Perindo Party, was established on February 7, 2015. The Perindo Party does not yet have a seat in parliament. However, the Perindo Party has media power, because the founder and chairman of the Perindo Party is the owner of several television stations.



National Democratic Party

The National Democratic Party known as the NasDem Party was born on July 26, 2011 with a force that is quite respected in the Indonesian political space. The National Democratic Party has 59 seats in parliament plus 186 members of the regional parliament which has a very luxurious office. It can be said that the National Democratic Party is the party with the best office of all parties in Indonesia.

The National Democratic Party carries all the necessary administration to register as a candidate for the 2024 election. In general, the Democratic National Party does not have problems with the Political Party Information System.



Star Moon Party

The Crescent Star Party, which was founded on July 17, 1998, has no seats in parliament. In the previous election, the Crescent Star Party became an election participant after challenging the decision of the General Elections Commission. At this time, administrative files are generally declared complete.



Indonesian Sovereign State Party

The Indonesian Sovereign State Party has been established in the Indonesian political space since October 2020 and has never experienced election contestation. However, in the registration process, the Indonesian Sovereign State Party was declared incomplete in fulfilling the requirements for management at the regional/district/city level. There is still a process for how the Indonesian Sovereign State Party completes the document.



Those are the parties that registered with the General Elections Commission today. There will be many parties registering as candidates for election contestants.
