These conditions rules could potentially make injustice towards legal protection of voters and participants in the election. In addition, authorizing the election implementers (KPU) to resolve the violation itself contrary to law principle nemo judex in causa sua (prohibition break things concerning himself) and the principle of nemo judex in propria causa idoneus (one cannot be a judge for himself ). The condition is potentially bringing the injustice and legal uncertainty to provide protection against the vote of the people in the elections process. Reconstruction of the regulation offered by the researcher include: First, the clear distinction between the implementers and executive body and the body of election executive only.
