Abstract

The people’s disapproval of the presidential election system during the New Order era was due to the fact that it was deemed less democratic and had the potential to produce authoritarian leaders, so that is an indication of the many problems that eventually led to constitutional changes or the 1945 Constitution Amendment. The issues raised in this study are the democratization of the New Order President’s election system with the Reformation Age and the implications of the President’s direct election system for democracy in Indonesia. The research the authors do is included in the type of normative legal research. This study concluded that during the New Order era the President was elected by the “Majelis Permusyawaratan Rakyat” (MPR), by using a voting system and only MPR members had voting rights. So that this system is considered less democratic. The implication of the direct election of the President for democracy in Indonesia is the emergence of regional disintegrative attitudes.
