ETHICS AND ORGANIZATIONAL DIMENSIONS IN PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION: DKPP AND THE QUALITY OF ELECTION MANAGEMENT
In public administration, ethical and moral aspects are very important to guide state/government officials in serving the community, including in the conduct of elections. Adequate regulation of election management organizations in the general election law is a determining factor for the realization of quality elections. The Election Organizers Honorary Council (DKPP) which is regulated in Law Number 7 of 2017 concerning Elections is an important pillar for upholding the code of ethics for election organizers. With normative juridical methods and literature, it is clear that ethics is very important for election management officials at all levels of government. The implementation of elections is part of the public administration which is carried out by non-structural institutions. The ethical and moral dimensions in the form of a code of ethics for election administrators need to be enforced effectively by the DKPP. Ethical violations by election management officials still occur in various regions. The regulation on the organizational dimensions of DKPP in the election law is not as complete as that for the General Election Commission (KPU) and the Election Supervisory Body (Bawaslu). Dimensions that are regulated include specialization, formalization, hierarchy of authority, size of the organization, supporting elements and nature of the organization. There are some settings that are incomplete, unclear, and ambiguous, so they need to be refined.
