VOINews, Jakarta - The Election Supervisory Body (Bawaslu) is compiling data on the Social Media Thematic Election Vulnerability Index (IKP) which is considered to be a threat in the 2024 Simultaneous Elections.
"We are currently compiling the Social Media Thematic 2024 Election Vulnerability Index, including political polarization. Just wait, it will be launched this year," said Bawaslu RI member Lolly Suhenty in Makassar, South Sulawesi, Wednesday.
According to her, the potential vulnerability of the 2024 Election can occur from various aspects, one of which comes from social media. For this reason, his party is taking quick and precise steps to anticipate this potential.
"Why thematic because based on Bawaslu's analysis, it is one of the things that threatens the 2024 Election," he said.
He stated that one of the efforts made by Bawaslu in the context of prevention was to map areas that were vulnerable in the 2024 Election.
"We created the 2024 Election Vulnerability Index so that we have the readiness to face situations that may occur in 2024, one of which is hoaxes on social media," said Lolly, who serves in the Public Relations and Inter-Agency Relations Division of Bawaslu RI.
Regarding the supervision model through the Democracy Awareness Movement (Garasi) in South Sulawesi, she said, it was important because the initiative moved and was born from participatory supervisors.
"Garasi is one of the breakthroughs of the South Sulawesi Bawaslu which, if it can be implemented with a wider reach and more innovation, will be able to block more potential vulnerabilities in South Sulawesi," Lolly said.
She hopes that from this forum original ideas will be born from participatory supervisors through the alumni of the Participatory Supervisory Cadre School (SKPP) because later collaboration with Bawaslu in the regions will be much better.
Previously, Bawaslu RI launched the IKP for the 2024 General and Simultaneous Elections. Bawaslu even mapped potential vulnerabilities in 34 provinces and 514 districts and cities throughout Indonesia in the IKP.
The IKP revealed several categories of provinces with high, medium, and low vulnerability. For the high-prone category, namely Jakarta with a score of 88.95, North Sulawesi (87.48), North Maluku (84.86), West Java (77.04), and East Kalimantan (77.04).
For the medium-prone category, there are 21 provinces, including Banten (66.53), Lampung (64.61), Riau (62.59), Papua (57.27), and East Nusa Tenggara (56.75). A total of eight provinces are in the low category, including North Kalimantan (20.36), Central Kalimantan (18.77), and East Java (14.74). (Antaranews)
