Jakarta, InfoPublik - The General Election Commission (KPU) will extend the registration period for presidential candidates and vice presidential candidates if no registration were made until Friday (8/10).
"If until 10 August , at 24.00 West Indonesia Time, there is only one candidate pair registered or there is none at all registered, the registration period will be extended by 1x7 days," said KPU Chairman Arief Budiman, at the Harris Vertu Hotel, Tuesday (8/7).
