Abstract

The aim of the study is to improve the women political position. Women are still left behind than men, although constitutional position for women is more better in 2014 election than 2009 election.Through the qualitative explorative and descriptive method, is known that in 2014 election there are 522.246 women and 515,412 men, who have the voting rights; but only 408,115 women (78.25%) and 372,539 men (72.18%) given their votes. From 535 fixed candidates, devided to 190 women (35.51%) and 345 men (64.49%). In legislative, there are 6 seats (12%) for women and 44 seats (88%) for men. The women candidat is very minim (12%), because affirmative application just only to meet the quota, using the closed system in recruitment because there are strong otoritarian/patriarchal system in the party and majority they are not from party cadres.This study recomended to make political party regulation more assertive to require 30% of women to be leader/core position and they must come from political cadres through the open recruitment system. It is need to improve the women competencies to make women more involved in political process as equal as man.
