saco-indonesia.com, Kericuhan kembali telah terjadi saat sidang di Mahkamah Konstitusi (MK). Di MK sendiri juga sedang berlangsung 6 sidang yakni, Sidang Pilkada Deli Serdang, sidang Kabupaten Kerinci, UU Pilpres dan lainnya.

Kabid Humas Polda Metro Jaya Kombes Rikwanto juga menuturkan kericuhan telah terjadi pada pukul 13.30 WIB saat persidangan sengketa pilkada Kabupaten Kerinci.

"Kericuhan di luar tidak mengganggu jalannya persidangan," ujar Rikwanto di Mapolda Metro Jaya, Kamis (23/1).

Rikwanto juga menjelaskan, peristiwa tersebut telah berawal ketikan pendukung dari nomor urut 2 dan 3 telah memasuki ruang persidangan.

"Pendukung nomor urut 3 telah melakukan protes ke Pamdal MK karena saat melalui security checking terlalu banyak ditanya oleh pihak Pamdal," terang Rikwanto.

Padahal, saat pendukung nomor urut 2 masuk, petugas tidak terlalu banyak ditanya. Petugas pun juga telah melerai kericuhan tersebut.

Menurut hasil dari pemeriksaan terhadap pihak Pamdal, didapati saat pendukung nomor urut 2 akan memasuki ruang sidang, suasana di dalam ruangan masih banyak kursi kosong. "Sedangkan, saat pendukung nomor urut 3 masuk, Pamdal banyak bertanya karena ruangan sidang sudah padat," paparnya.

"Ada salah persepsi dan tafsir, terjadi cekcok, antara Pamdal dengan pendukung nomor urut 3. Ada kejar-kejaran di luar sidang. Dan semuanya bisa diredam, serta tidak ada yang diamankan," jelas Rikwanto.

Beruntung, kericuhan di pintu masuk ruang persidangan tersebut tidak berlangsung lama dan sudah kembali kondusif.

"Total pengamanan sidang hari ini di MK ada sekitar 648 personel. Kejadian itu di luar ruang persidangan," tandasnya.

SIDANG SENGKETA DALAM PILKADA KERINCI DI MK RICUH

BEIJING (AP) — The head of Taiwan's Nationalists reaffirmed the party's support for eventual unification with the mainland when he met Monday with Chinese President Xi Jinping as part of continuing rapprochement between the former bitter enemies.

Nationalist Party Chairman Eric Chu, a likely presidential candidate next year, also affirmed Taiwan's desire to join the proposed Chinese-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank during the meeting in Beijing. China claims Taiwan as its own territory and doesn't want the island to join using a name that might imply it is an independent country.

Chu's comments during his meeting with Xi were carried live on Hong Kong-based broadcaster Phoenix Television.

The Nationalists were driven to Taiwan by Mao Zedong's Communists during the Chinese civil war in 1949, leading to decades of hostility between the sides. Chu, who took over as party leader in January, is the third Nationalist chairman to visit the mainland and the first since 2009.

Relations between the communist-ruled mainland and the self-governing democratic island of Taiwan began to warm in the 1990s, partly out of their common opposition to Taiwan's formal independence from China, a position advocated by the island's Democratic Progressive Party.

Despite increasingly close economic ties, the prospect of political unification has grown increasingly unpopular on Taiwan, especially with younger voters. Opposition to the Nationalists' pro-China policies was seen as a driver behind heavy local electoral defeats for the party last year that led to Taiwanese President Ma Ying-jeou resigning as party chairman.
