Abstract

The Regional Representative Council (DPD) was born in the era where changes to the 1945 Constitution occurred and new problems appeared in the representation system in Indonesia. Based on the provisions of the Constitution of the Republic of Indonesia (UUD) NRI Article 22 C Year 1945, DPD members that are elected through elections and DPD members from each province consist of the same number that is four members, this shows the same provisions without considering the territorial territory and the population of each province. In UUD NRI Article 22 D Year 1945, the regional representative council does not hold any power to form a law. The regional representative council can only submit a draft law to the regional representative council, thus they are unable to make a final political decision. The limited authority of the legislative function of DPD has become a necessity for its reconstruction. Legally, the improvement of this legislation can be done by regularly developing the UUD NRI Year 1945. This is to avoid the implementation of the function of the regional representative council, which does not reflect the spirit of democracy and as one of the mandates of popular sovereignty.
