The General Elections Commission (KPU) has uploaded 165 million names in the list of interim voters to the voter list information system.
â€śThere are around 165 million or 88 percent names in the system. We plan to launch KPUâ€™s official website this afternoon,â€ť said KPU commissioner Ferry Kurnia.
The data is the result of correction from the previous data of 187 million voters that were recapitulated by KPU from all regions, except Papua. â€śData from Papua is not yet complete,â€ť he said.
Ferry predicted that there will still be changes in the data depending on verification by KPU officers.
The number of voters can increase if the number of 17-year-old voters are is higher, while the number of voters can decrease if there is double data or deceased voters are still registered.
â€śTherefore, we hope for public participation in improving our data,â€ť said Ferry.
