The Effectiveness of the Presidential Threshold Concept in the Presidential and Vice-Presidential Election System in Indonesia

alwi al hadad, Ade Kurniawan, Irdan Nurdiansyah


This study aims to analyze how the effectiveness of the presidential threshold concept is implemented in the presidential and vice presidential elections in Indonesia. The theory used is the theory of democracy associated with political parties and elections. The method used in this study uses a normative approach by analyzing the law on the symptoms that exist in the election process, and using a qualitative approach by collecting existing data in literacy and literature. The results of the discussion show that the process of using the presidential threshold in the election results in pros and cons and conflicts in it because of various understandings and incompatibilities with the social life that exists in Indonesian society, which incidentally each region has its own culture. The character of the presidential threshold seems to be a planting bomb for every political party that carries each candidate because the strategies and steps that are determined can make a wrong position and have a negative impact on the related political parties
