46 political parties register for Indonesia's 2014 polls
The commission opened registration on August 10 and closed it on September 7. Commissioner Hadar Nafis Gumay said no more political parties were allowed to register with the poll body.
“There are 46 political parties that have registered to participate in the 2014 general election,” Hadar said, as quoted by tribunnews.com.
After closing the registration, Hadar said, the commission now would check whether or not the 46 parties had completed the 17 administrative documents requested by the commission. The verification process, he said, would run until September 29.
“Then, we will later announce which parties completed the administrative documents,” he said.
After the administrative requirements were verified as complete, Hadar said, the commission would conduct a factual verification process, slated to wrap up by January 6, he said. Political parties would be officially recognized as 2014 national election participants only after passing the factual verification process.
In 2009, the poll body cleared 34 political parties to participate in the national general election after verification of their registration documents.
