Based on the Constitutional Court Verdict No. 51-52-59/PUU-VI/2008, provisions on the candidacy at the Act level were declared constitutional with some terms, that there are some dissenting opinions among judges who adjudicated the constitutional norms during the judicial review of the Act. Examination results obtained is that there have been change in meaning, in this case, the change takes a form of narrowing of meaning of the normative provisions of Article 6A paragraph (2) in a consequence to the provisions set in Article 9 of Law No. 42 of 2008.
