Regional Election has been implemented since 2006 in Aceh. As much as the election has brought positive impact in the implementation of democracy in Aceh for 12 years, it also has disadvantages. One of the phenomena is political dynasties such as in Nagan Raya District under the leadership of Regent period 2012-2017, and he had run the office for about 15 years. During his term of office, he has built a political dynasty by appointing a number of his family members and relatives as heads in Nagan Raya District government institutions. This political dynasty has become a chance for corruption, collusion, and nepotism in the district. This research was aimed at finding out the processes, practices, and procedures which Nagan Raya Regent period 2012-2017 followed to maintain his political dynasty. This research used primary and secondary data. The data were analyzed quantitatively by using a content analysis model. The research results show that Nagan Raya Regent period 2012-2017 maintained his political dynasty by appointing his family members and relatives in strategic positions in the government structures, nominating his wife to become a member and the leader of Legislative Council, assisting his younger brother to run for a regent candidate nominated by the Golkar Party. He helped his brother to win the vote by using political mobilization and by intimidating village administrators and civil servants, forcing subdistrict heads to collect some village fund from each village head to finance his brother political campaign, and advertising his brother by distributing campaign calendar in a number of offices, departments, and institutions in Nagan Raya District.
