- The 1998 reformation marks a new milestone in the journey of Indonesian state administration as The 1945 Constitution of the Republic of Indonesia has undergone fundamental changes by four times. The third amendment to the 1945 Constitution has mandated a new state institution or upper house namely the House of Regional Representative or the senators (Dewan Perwakilan Daerah Republik Indonesia/ DPD RI). The existence of DPD in the Indonesian constitutional structure is regulated in Articles 22C and 22D. Eventhough this council is further mentioned in Article 22D, Article 22E, and Article 22F, it is not comprehensively regulated in the 1945 Constitution. In the Law No. 22 of 2003 relating to the DPD, the structure of DPD and the mechanism of the relationship between the DPD and the DPR and/or the government is not regulated in the 1945 Constitution, even though the material should be regulated in the Constitution. The initial idea of the establishment of DPD was to require Parliament to consist of two political representative institutions namely the House of Representative and territorial representative institutions that is the Regional Representative Council. Over time, this bicameral parliament idea disappears. For this reason, the function and authority of DPD in the era of regional autonomy must be recovered and improved. Moreover, considering the Indonesian archipelago topography existence, local aspirations and local government can be channeled through DPD RI in the framework of accelerating regional human development.
