Abstract

Several things that must be addressed and paid attention to by the Bawaslu itself in terms of optimizing the authority of the Bawaslu include, among others, the non-neutrality of civil servants and village heads, the occurrence of money politics, the large number of findings/reports of alleged election violations that do not fulfill the elements as a result of weak regulations, supervisory human resources ad hock is still low, there is a lack of public participation in election supervision, there is still a lack of socialization of election supervision and there is an impression of formality in a limited space, and there are still areas that are difficult to reach in order to realize the holding of simultaneous elections in 2024 which will later run fairly and produce leaders and deputy candidates qualified people from their performance and moral quality.

The type of research that the writer uses is a juridical-normative type of research. In this research, the collection of legal materials was carried out through Library Research, in the form of documents and laws and regulations related to Bawaslu and the simultaneous local elections in 2024.

The oversight function inherent in Bawaslu is due to the mandate of the law, while the oversight function carried out by election observers arises because of the awareness to realize elections with integrity and to reduce the level of violations in each stage of the simultaneous election, such as a code of ethics. So it is important that apart from encouraging transparency in the holding of elections, it is also important to encourage community involvement in conducting monitoring.
