Descriptive qualitative research methods used in this study, with normativism political science study approach, analytical techniques using interactive methods and data explored in depth through knowledge informant. The results of the study show that the Pemilukada of a single candidate is full of engineering by local and national political actors so that there is only a single candidate. Political elites control other powers, and the influence of incumbent forces that are too large "closes" other political forces to compete. Failure of other powers, because of the immaturity of strategies and considerations before the appearance of the Constitutional Court's ruling on the Single Candidate Election
