Abstract

Mamasa Regency, West Sulawesi is a regency with majority population of Protestant Christians with percentage of 75.36%. Whereas Muslims only have population of religious identity of 12.86%. However, in the two periods of direct regional head elections from 2013 to 2018 and 2018-2023, this regency is led by the Regent Ramlan Badawi who is a Muslim. Morover, in the second period, Ramlan Badawi joined the election of the regional head by becoming a sole candidate and won with a score of 61.22%. The political phenomenon in Mamasa Regency is an anomaly from the tensions and identity politics conflicts that currently occur in many regional elections in Indonesia. By using the Ralf Dahrendorf approach of two faces of society, namely 'conflict and consensus', this research reveals two main conclusions that why the identity politics, particularly religious-based are not occured in Mamasa Regency is that by maintaining the memory of trauma of regional expansion conflicts as lessons and efforts to present wisdom of the past as peace consensus as well as the ability of political strategy of actor Ramlan Badawi.
