INDUSTRY.co.id - Medan - North Sumatra Provincial Election Commission re-designate JR Saragih-Ance partner is not eligible to follow the elections of North Sumatra 2018.

North Sumatera KPU has made an official report Number 95 / PL.03-BA / 12 / Prov / III / 2018 related to the decision stating that JR Saragih-Ance partner does not meet the nomination requirements.

In accordance with the decision of Bawaslu on the submission of the election petition, the culub of North Sumatera JR Saragih was ordered to legalize the diploma to the Education Department of DKI Jakarta.

However, from the legalization process at the Regional Education Office of 2 Central Jakarta, the legalized document is the Certificate of Substitution Certificate (SKPI).
