Title Political Participation for Person with Disabilities: State’s Obligation and Failure
 
Creator Juniar, Mutiah Wenda
 
Description This paper discusses the state’s obligation and implementation failure to fulfill the rights to political participation for the person with disability. There are two questions this paper proposed to address. First, what are the obligation of states to fulfill the rights to political participation for the person with disability that is set out in CRPD and interpreted by the Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disability? Second, what are the failures that states did in the implementation of political participation for the person with disabilities? In answering the question, the writer uses journals, concluding observation, shadow reports from NGO, cases and official publications. This research find that 1) under CRPD the states are obliged to provide accessible facilities for person with disabilities from registration process until the vote counting process and states are obliged for not to exclude person with intellectual disability to enjoy their political rights as emphasized in the case of Budjoso v Hungary and General Comment No. 1 produced by the Committee. 2) The Implementation failure is the exclusion of the person with intellectual disabilities to enjoy their political rights, lack of accessibilities, support and awareness regarding political participation for the person with disabilities.
