Abstract

In the 2019 election, the size of the parliamentary threshold is 4%. The use of the parliamentary threshold is very burdensome for small and new parties and often gives injustice. For this reason, the author will discuss the evaluation of the use of the parliamentary threshold and the solution to the abolition of the parliamentary threshold. This research is juridical normative, which is carried out by examining library materials or secondary data in the form of primary and secondary legal materials. The parliamentary threshold is benefit large parties already relatively well-established, and also impacts wasted voter vote acquisition on parties that cannot the minimum parliamentary threshold votes. It has implications on disproportionalitof seats. Necessary remove the parliamentary threshold so that parties with votes below 4% get seats. Worries about the large number of parties in parliament which will affect the stability of the government, is to simplify the factions in the DPR or reduce the number of seats in each electoral district which is followed up by changing the quota mechanism for one seat to a fixed seat, this matter to make political decision making in the DPR more effective, and efforts to democratize in the parliament.
