Elections become the most important indicator of political party's electability. Earning votes in the general election becomes measurement of success or failure of a political party for five years. The up and down experienced by political parties could not separated from how the political parties respond to any problems and political conflicts that occur at public. This led to the disalignment of political parties that give impact to the declining in the vote of political parties in the general election. Disalignment is interpreted as the transfer of voters from one party to another party, due to several things, such as; the failure of party leadership, the occurrence of internal conflicts, the presence of other party alternatives, political party positioning issues related to the issue of national identity, and others. One party that experienced disalignment was the Prosperous Justice Party (PKS). In the General Election 2009, PKS received 8,206,955 (7.88%) votes with the seats of the House of Representatives 57 or 10.18%. While in the General Election 2014 there was a significant decrease of 8,480,104 (6.79%) and 40 (7.1%) of seats in the DPR. Some things are considered to be the cause of the decline in numbers relating to issues of party leadership, internal conflicts, party positioning on government. The decline in PKS votes in the 2014 election is a response indicated by the constituency to what is happening in the organization itself.
