In addition, national figures have nothing to do in the current prospective campaign process. Thus, he requested that the Political Parties prioritize the delivery of vision, mission, and program.

"First of all this should be changed way of thinking how to understand about the campaign so that can be involved in the campaign activities in the form of pictures that bearers, Political Parties, The Paslon," he said as quoted by Antara

With this ban, the KPU wants to design that the process of campaign stage is political education for the community. This is intended to enable voters to know about the priority programs of regional head candidates.
