Abstract

According to Mainwaring, the system of political parties in the third wave of democracy is significantly less institutionalized than those in long-established democracies. A more institutionalized system is a system where political parties have strong roots in society. The purpose of this study is to determine the high volatility of Political Parties in Jambi Province. By using qualitative descriptive research methods the results of this study indicate that the existence of Political Parties in Jambi Province since the beginning of the reform era shows a high level of volatility. The general elections that have taken place, on the one hand, produce successive winning political parties and on the other hand, show the deterioration in the voice of existing political parties. The fundamental problem that arises is the high level of primordial phenomena within political parties, the weakness of the institutional system of political parties, not entrenching the relations of political parties with constituents and unconsolidated relations well
