Democracy requires respect for the political rights of citizens as the main thing to become state policy, one of which is through general elections. Democracy development often does not run smoothly, especially in developing countries that do not have a democratic tradition like Indonesia. Indonesia's democratic growth index until 2021 is still very low. The holding of honest and fair elections is one of the challenges in the growth of democracy in Indonesia. The unsatisfactory performance of election administrators, as one of the pillars of Indonesian democracy, is one of the highlights in efforts to build Indonesian democracy. Election organizers forget the main task of serving the political interests of citizens with dignity. Since the ethical institute for election administrators was established in 2021, unsatisfactory performance of election organizers has increasingly shown.
