Future Individuals in Elections

Terms of independent crowded in public but in fact deserted perpetrators and supporters. Who would be your individual path that many can public support? What if the question is, whos elected regional heads track individuals who successfully led the region?

What cause? There need not conclude descriptors for both parties still create political leaders. It should also delayed the conclusion, the public has not been able to initiate solid figure brings good quality, could win the election, then juggling the government to be much better for the public.

Stories individual leader election candidates of Jakarta in 2017 as titled, “Finally to the Political Parties Also”. Will be different tenacity and public partial results if the collection of ID cards aimed at pressuring the party to support / carry Ahok. The logic of “no enemies / friends eternal in politics” parties even entered the heads of the public. Independent candidates that is predicted to cross party lines even as he says “I am from the first person is my fathers party and Golkar people”.

Unrequited asa candidate elections perseorang ensued in the city of Yogyakarta. Jogja Independent bearers Garin Nugroho-Rommy Harianto as a candidate for Mayor and Vice Mayor of Yogyakarta, surrendered. Terms of the support 27 thousand ID cards only collected 3,918 ID cards. Antipartai impression in the beginning, ends with courtesy recommend couples minimal public support for it to the party.

Increases in the national scale

We must realize, Unison 2017 elections not only in Jakarta and Yogyakarta alone. Existing and future leaders of any individual does not belong to local residents “Special / special” it. Feeling cocky if we measure the local democratization wearing only a barometer centralized or purporting to be a classic educated.

Individual registrants path elections in 2017 increased compared to the elections of 2015. Although the requirement for individual lines heavier than the 2017 elections Election 2015 refers to an increase registrant individual lines on the stages of the elections information system (Sitap) General Elections Commission (KPU). Total registrants lines totaling 167 individuals Election 2015 candidate pair. This amount is spread in 94 regions out of 269 regions the total number who organized the elections of 2015. From the first applicants for the position of individual lines cagub and not berjender women.

While the registries in the elections in 2017 amounted to 116 pairs of candidates. This amount is spread in 57 regions out of 101 regions the total number who organized the elections in 2017. Figures registrant individual lines in 2017 elections means up 0.5% compared to the 2015 elections.

In general, the Act No.10 / 2016 aggravate the condition of individual lines. Article 41 emphasizes, prospective conditional track individual has the support of the population and are entitled to select the final voters list of the last election. Province has up to 2 million people, must be supported by at least 10% of DPT. This province of 2 to 6 million people, 8.5%. Provincial population of 6 to 12 million people, 7.5%. And, this province of over 12 million people, 6.5%.

Banten province in the 2017 local elections is the election of governor-lieutenant governor registrants most individual paths. There are four pairs of applicants are: 1) Yayan Sofyan-Enong Queen St. Rz. Mandala; 2) Tubagus Sangadiah-Subari; 3) R. Ampi Nurkamal Tanudjiwa-Yeyen Maryani; and 4) R. Achmad Dimyati Natakusumah-Yemmelia.

State the number of applicants for individual lines Banten Election contrast to other provinces. Pilkada Bangka Belitung, West Sulawesi, and West Papua none at all registrar candidates for governor and vice governor of individual lines. Pilkada Gorontalo No 1 registrar. And, the bustle of Jakarta election of independent candidates actually only deliver one registrant individual path that has certainly failed to qualify support.

Learning from Aceh

Aceh local elections became the second largest provincial election registrar his personal path with three pairs of candidates. Registrant-Nasaruddin Zaini Abdullah, Abdullah Puteh-Sayed Mustafa Al-Idroes Usab, and Zakaria Saman-political dynamics Aceh Private maintain relatively higher compared to other regions. Context 2016-2017 Aceh that is different from the current context of Acehs first local elections are also many individual paths candidates.

The relative number of pairs registrant individual pathways in Aceh than other regions due to the requirements of individual lines support the elections in Aceh in 2017 is far lower than any other region. Registrants track individual candidates for governor and vice governor of Aceh enough to collect 150s of thousands of support. Referring to Law No.11 / 2006 on Governing Aceh Article 68 Paragraph (1), 3% of the total population distribution requirements include a minimum of 50% of district / city.

Aceh regulatory context that made the difference when the political dynamics of individual lanes were first implemented in Indonesia in the elections provinces and districts / cities in Aceh. Law No.32 / 2004 on Regional Government irrelevant to the political aspirations of Aceh to elect regional heads. National parties in Aceh do not have connectivity with mass politics represented Aceh Aceh Movement.

Law No.11 / 2006 was born one of them to answer the needs of regional heads in Aceh who want to get rid of the monopoly of the national parties. Because the local parties in Aceh have not been there at that time, the party meant only represent the interests of national / Jakarta. Thus, the organization of elections in Aceh in 2006 became the first local elections Indonesia that provides individual lines.

The political context of Aceh became the principal reason why the individual lines are needed and the prerequisite individual gets a lot of public support. Party, both national and local, very probably could not or would not meet the aspirations of citizens related to regional leaders. Another political shaft can be tied directly to the people without going through the party.

Party is an important entity and can not be separated in a democracy. But, let the party as a single track in the executive nomination of a parliamentary government regulation is not contradictory to the needs of executive leaders describe the taste of the people as voters.

Variety track the nomination unconditional more weight allowing healthy competition. Many leaders choice is better than only two couples, let alone a single partner. Maybe this time more voters who like the leader of the anti-corruption than ideologue, visionary, populist, or humanists. Provide a range of candidacy is more likely to bring a leader with all the criteria, as well. []
