POST-2019 general election, the death and morbidity
rate of KPPS officers (Voting Organizing Groups) continues to increase day by
day.

The number of all 2019 Election officers who have died has exceeded the
figure of 583 people. The figure consisted of 469 officers of KPPS, 92
supervisory officers and 22 security officers.

Concerned about the incident, the Medical Emergency Rescue Committee
(MER-C) formed a health mitigation team for the 2019 election disaster. MER-C
coach Joserizal Journalist accused the government and the General Election
Commission (KPU) of ignoring the case so that victims continued to fall.

“MER-C urged the Government and KPU to care both in terms of going
down to see the sick victims and handling them including hospital funding and
so on until they recovered, this is to prevent more deaths,” Joserizal
said at MER-C Office Senen, Central Jakarta, Wednesday (05/15/2019).

MER-C has determined this event to be an extraordinary condition that must
get quick and serious attention from the government and KPU. Joserizal
explained that his party would sue the government and the General Election
Commission to the International Criminal Court (ICC) and the United Nations
Human Rights Commission (UNHRC) if it continued to allow this to happen.

“If the government and KPU remain ignorant in the case of the 2019
Election humanitarian disaster, then MER-C will file a lawsuit to the
International Criminal Court and the United Nations Human Rights Commission,”
he said.

However, MER-C is still waiting for KPU’s response regarding this
matter. If the KPU is good at fulfilling their wishes, the report will not be
posted to the ICC and UNHRC.

MER-C also stated that it was ready to help reveal the cause of death of
KPPS officers by forming the 2019 Election Disaster Mitigation Team consisting
of internal medicine specialists, medical rehabilitation, occupational
medicine, neurology, forensics, and psychology who served in the Greater
Jakarta area.

“Death can indeed be caused by fatigue, as long as he has a
history of other diseases such as a heart attack. But it must be explored, it
cannot be just a hypothesis. The proof must be COD (cause of death), “he
said.

It should be noted, until the end of last week, the total number of
officers in the Election 2019 who died became 583 people. Consisting of 469
KPPS officers, 92 supervisory officers and 22 security officers.

KPU Commissioner Evi Novida Ginting Manik said, in addition to KPPS who
died, 4,602 KPPS fell ill while on duty. “Based on data up to 08.00 WIB
this morning, there were 469 KPPS died and 4602 KPPS fell ill,” Evi told
