In the 1945 Constitution of 1945, Article 22E states that general elections shall be held directly, publicly, freely, secretly, honestly and fairly every five years, to elect members of the People's Legislative Assembly, Regional Representative Council, President and DeputyPresident and House of Representatives Area. Elections are organized by an election commission, permanent and independent. Recruitment of Candidates for Regional Heads Based on Law Number 10 Year 2016 regarding the Second Amendment to Law Number 1 Year 2015 on Stipulation of Perpu.1 of 2014 on the Elections of Governors, Regents and Mayors Becoming Laws. Election Candidates under Article 39 are: (a) Candidate Pair of Governor and Candidate of Deputy Governor, Candidate Pair of Regent and Candidate of Deputy Regent and Candidate Pair of Mayor and Candidate of Deputy Mayor combined by Political Party or combination of Political Party; and/or (b) a pair of individual candidates supported by the number of persons. Arrangements for the future are about the merging of regional head candidates from political parties and individuals (independent), so the concept of candidacy that needs to be regulated in the law for the election of regional heads in the future is composed of four nominating concepts: (1) political parties; (2) Combined political parties; (3) Individual candidates (independent); (4) Combined candidates of association with a political party and/or a coalition of political parties.
