Based mostly on the outcomes of the 2024 Legislative Election which have been decided by the Indonesian Normal Election Fee (KPU), the Labor Occasion and Gelora every obtained 972,910 and 1,281,991 votes.

This perception relies on the Constitutional Courtroom’s choice 19 years in the past Quantity 005/PUU-III/2005 which mainly states that political events that wouldn’t have DPRD seats, so long as they get votes within the DPRD elections, have to be given the correct to appoint candidate pairs within the Regional Elections.
