Abstract

This study discusses the DPRD, which is a regional people's representative body whose position is as an element of regional government administration, which is present not to reduce executive authority, but as a form of effort to better guarantee the interests of the people in all government policies. This study uses a qualitative approach. DPRD has three main functions, one of which is the oversight function of the implementation of policies in the area carried out by the Executive. This function also aims to ensure that regional governments carry out their programs in accordance with the plans and provisions of the applicable laws. One of the efforts to realize people's sovereignty, the DPRD implements it through a Hearing Meeting (RDP). The DPRD of Southeast Sulawesi Province in carrying out RDP, always involves various parties related to the problems at hand. One example of a case that occurred some time ago in Southeast Sulawesi Province regarding the construction of the Pelosika Dam in Konawe Regency and East Kolaka Regency. In this case, it is suspected that there were elements from the Konawe Regency BPN who became the land mafia. This has angered the people who are members of the Aliansi Masyarakat Asinua Menggugat (AMAM), it is suspected that BPN elements have issued certificates to areas of protected forest areas and lands in conflict. As a result of this, AMAM staged a demonstration in front of the Southeast Sulawesi DPRD building.
