In the 2019, legislative elections and the elections that will take place in 2018 in several regions there are debates that arise at this time, namely the rights of suspects and former prisoners to run for candidates for legislative and regional head candidates. On the one hand, it is the right of the suspects and the prisoners to take part in the election process, but on the other hand, there is the right of the people who must also be protected to get their representatives with their criminal records. As it turns out in practice, however, the problem is whether the suspect of corruption case, (in the name of equality before the law and the name of equality of human rights), still have a suffrage? There are two parties whose rights should be protected, namely suspects based on the principle of presumption of innocence and the rights of the people to have a clean and integrity leaders and people’s representative. These problems are needed to learn in terms of Indonesian national legal provisions and international human rights provisions.
