Metrotvnes.com, Jakarta: The Democratic Party has firmly rejected the presidential threshold in the 2019 presidential election.

"What is the rational behind the presidential threshold?" Democratic Party deputy chairman Syarief Hasan in Jakarta on Friday.

The House of Representatives special committee will resume the election bill deliberation next week. It will address important issues with the government.

The committee will conclude the election bill deliberation this month. It will decide unresolved issues with voting.

Big political parties propose higher parliamentary threshold. Meanwhile, medium and small political parties propose lower parliamentary threshold.

"Democratic Party will propose 0%," Syarief said.
