The Constitutional Court in Decision Number 97 / PUU-XI / 2013 states that the dispute over the head of region election is not included in the authority of its constitutionality. The Lawmakers follow up this ruling by initiating a special judicial body that will hear disputes over the results of head of region election.

This paper suggests the existence of a judicial body that will handle disputes over regional head elections that will provide legal certainty for the democratic process in Indonesia.
