Abstract

This research aims to examine the Intercandidate Agenda-Setting in the elections of DKI Jakarta province 2017 during the first and second round campaign. The underlying theory of research is the agenda-setting theory and the agenda building. This research is quantitative research with content analysis method. The data collection is done by downloading the Tweets from Twitter account @AhokDjarot (n = 1013) and @JktMajuBersama (n = 1613) during the campaign period on both rounds. Tweets is divided into four month periods for the entire campaign period, three month periods for the first round campaign period, and four weeks period for the second round of campaigning. By using Spearman and Rozelle-Campbell Baseline correlations, the results obtained show that intercandidate agenda-setting relationships are found in the first round although the correlation is not as strong as in the second round.
