KUWAIT CITY, Feb 5: The Ambassador of Indonesia to Kuwait Lina Mariana denied any intention to send domestic workers to Kuwait, insisting that rumors in this regard are not true, and this is not a topic for discussion at the current period. In a press statement issued the day before yesterday evening during a press conference at the Indonesian Embassy in Kuwait to announce the launch of the Indonesian general elections for the year 2024, Ambassador Mariana said the government is holding elections to choose members of the National House of Representatives, members of the Regional Council of Representatives, the president, the vice president, members of the House of Representatives, provincial members, and members of the Municipal Council. She explained that six people are running for president and vice president.
A committee has been allocated to manage the elections outside the country, including Kuwait. Eligible voters in 128 countries can cast their votes. The number of Indonesian citizens in Kuwait is 6,164, and those entitled to cast their votes are 3,630 – 1,189 men and 2,441 women. Those entitled to vote abroad will receive two ballot papers, one to choose the president and his deputy, and the second to choose representatives of the National House of Representatives, as there are eight electoral committees available at the embassy to receive voters. The ambassador revealed that the voting process will begin at the embassy on February 9 from 8:00am to 6:00pm (Kuwait time), adding, “If none of the presidential candidates and their deputies obtain the minimum number of votes of 50 percent, another round of elections will be organized on June 26, 2024”.
