INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - The Constitutional Court (MK) has finally rejected the lawsuit issue of the threshold of nominating the president and the vice president (presidential threshold or Pres-T). The Chief Justice of the Constitutional Court, Arief Hidayat stated in the trial of the Pres-T case in the office of the Constitutional Court, Central Jakarta, Thursday (11/1).

The trial was followed by nine judges of the Constitutional Court. Of the nine judges, two judges expressed dissenting opinion, Saldi Isra and Suhartoyo. Both of them argue that the Pres-T rule is contradictory to the Constitution 145 because it is not relevant to the electoral system in unison. In addition, the regulation provides discrimination against new political parties with the old political parties. The new political parties are not entitled to nominate candidates.

In its decision, the Constitutional Court is of the opinion that the Pres-T rule is necessary for the simplification of political parties (Political Parties). It is in line with the presidential system adopted by this nation.

"Our system is often pouted with a cynical system of presidential sense of parliamentary," said Arief.

According to the Constitutional Court, in the presidential system, the number of political parties must continue to decrease, not the other way around.
