Abstract

The political representation of women in many regions in Indonesia does not meet the threshold for women's representation, including in the DPRD Kota Tanjungpinang. However, the quantity of women in the legislature has increased significantly in each election implementation since the area became the capital of the Riau Islands Province in 2002. Tanjungpinang City as a new autonomous region has no problems with women's electability in the legislature, although it still does not meet the threshold for women's representation. When the early Tanjungpinang City legislature was formed until the last implementation of the 2019 Election, women's political representation experienced an increase, especially seen from the electability level of incumbent candidates. There tend to be almost all female incumbent candidates in the previous period being re-elected in every election until the 2019 election. Tanjungpinang with the heterogeneity of the population is interesting to see the level of women's political representation so that it shows success not only in the legislative body but also succeeded in obtaining the deputy mayor of Tanjungpinang in the general election of 2018
