This article is part of a series of researches on the critical discourse analysis (CDA) on democracy practices in West Sumatra. Then, the discussion in this study focussed on textual relations between discourses related to the enforcement of democracy in West Sumatra in the 2016 accounting year. To find this intertext, this study applied a critical discourse analysis approach within the theoretical framework of Sawirman’s BREAK in investigating discourse originating from mass media texts. The results of the analysis showed that the two comparing discourses of democracy in West Sumatra have a comparatively close textual relationship. The two discourse texts imply that there are still many violations of citizens’s rights in democracy, especially aspects of civil liberties. Although the two discourses appear in varying forms, however, based on the essence and spirit, they both carry messages and motives that are relatively identical.
