The use of metaphor and metonymy is pervasive in political discourse since it bridges the speaker/reader to its audience in delivering the message. This is also true in Indonesian political discourse, where various metonymies are used in political discourse, especially in media. This paper explores the use of Senayan in Indonesian Political Discourse to study what each use refers to and what it collocates with. For Indonesian native speakers, when reading or hearing the word in Indonesian political discourse, they will easily understand that Senayan refers in general to the House of Representatives and all associated with the institution. Senayan is the name of the local place in Jakarta where the building of the House of Representatives is located. This study aims to identify the exact referent of Senayan use as metonymy in political discourse. The study is qualitative and the data are headlines that are purposively taken from the Detiknews website. The result shows that the use of Senayan as metonymy does not only refer to an institution of the Indonesian House of Representatives but also can refer to the particular commission and particular member of the House of Representatives.
