Abstract

The title of this research is: "Problems of the Determination of Parliamentary Threshold for the General Election Parliament of the Republic of Indonesia". The goals of this research are, first, to know and assess the determination of the parliamentary threshold for the general election of Indonesian House of Representatives; second, to identify and assess the constraints faced with regard to the determination of the parliamentary threshold, and third, to seek solutions to overcome the constraints faced relating to the determination of the parliamentary threshold. This research is a normative legal research by using legal political approach, and studying it from the perspective of state law theory, democratic theory and the formation of legislation theory. Results of this research showed that: first, the determination of the parliamentary threshold was set up in two laws that generated by the legislators: Act Number 10 of 2008 about the Election of Members of the House of Representatives, Regional Representatives Council, and the Local House of Representatives and the Law Number 8 of 2012 about the Election of Members of the House of Representatives, Regional Representatives Council, and the Local House of Representatives. Second, the implications posed related to the parliamentary threshold is the reduced number of political parties entering parliament and many voters are not converted into seat in parliament. Third, the determination of parliamentary threshold in Law Number 8 of 2012 has not been well regulated and qualified because of the interests of political parties in parliament still very dominating. Fourth, faced with strong dominance of the interests of political parties in the realm of legislation, it needs the awareness of the legislators to put forward the will of the people, because the legislator is a representation of the will of the people
