Constitutional Court decision number 14/PUU-XI/2013 stated that the elections of President and the Parliament would be held simultaneously. This decision applies for elections since 2019. However, there are many problems if elections co-occur. This research aims to analyze problems that may arise in the implementation of the simultaneous elections of President and the Parliament. The type of research is legal research with a normative point of view. The approaches of the research are the statue and conceptual approach. The primary data of this research is secondary data, which consist of primary and secondary legal material. Based on the research, the release of the Constitutional Court's decision about simultaneous elections of President and the Parliament can cause problems, such as the terms of the presidential threshold are no longer relevant to keep in because there is no separation between the President and Parliament general election. Besides, the elections will confuse the voters, especially older adults, because many candidates should be chosen, with lower public participation. Ballot papers counting will take longer and more personals. Also, it will need many apparatus to anticipate the conflict. Therefore, the Commission of General Election must prepare seriously, starting from the regulation, implementation, to settlement of conflicts.
