Abstract

The presence of millennials determines the future face of the nation because they represent 40% of Indonesia’s population, but they are very few as politicians. This requires an effort to understand millennial thoughts and behavior to encourage them to become cogs, including political change. Based on research from the Indonesian Parliament Concern Community Forum (Formappi), the political parties with the most number of millennial legislative candidates are the PSI (Indonesian Solidarity Party) with 240 candidates, 142 PPP candidates, and 98 candidates for Gerindra. The regeneration of politicians from each political party has experienced significant obstacles and threats, as evidenced by the fact that elected legislators and regional heads from the millennial generation are only occupied by less than 12.5%. Millennial generation should occupy more of the political stage, because the demands of the industrial era 4.0 require dynamic, creative and innovative thinking or energy. This research aims first, to obtain data and information about efforts to affirm regeneration in political parties, second, to examine the readiness of young politicians as millennial generations in facing political contestation, which is reflected through political interactions in digital media. the third examines the determinants of political regeneration in political parties. The research method used is qualitative with a case study approach and analysis of social media content. With informants from young politicians and political party leaders, namely, Gerindra, PDI-P and the Indonesian Solidarity Party. The results showed that the efforts of political party leaders to regenerate political affirmations were carried out by means of structured cadres, including face-to-face and social media.
