Once the local KPU decided on 25 November 2016 that only Benhur--Rustan and Boy--Nuralam were eligible to contest the election, the obvious problem was that both of these candidate pairs were supported by the same party, PKPI, which was then experiencing a severe internal conflict at the national level, which had produced rival boards." The statement of PKPI support for Benhur--Rustan was signed by the leaders of one of these boards, namely, Haris Sudarno, general chairperson and Samuel Samson, the general secretary.
However, according to the official database held by the Ministry of Law and Human Rights, the registered leaders of the PKPI were Isran Noor as chairperson and Samuel Samson as secretary-general.
One critical failing identified by the DKPP was that the KPU should have immediately identified the problem with the PKPI, alerting Benhur--Rustam that their endorsement was from a PKPI board that was not recognized by the government or the central KPU.
