According to the constitution, local leaders election is people’s sovereignty right, whether it is direct or indirect. This right is implemented by electing the local leaders once in five years in the realization of local leader election as a system in Indonesia.  The fourth principle of Pancasila states that “democracy is led by prudence and wisdom in the deliberation of delegation” and Chapter 18 verse 4 states that “Governor, Regent, and Mayor as the heads of local government in a province, regency, and city should be elected democratically,” which is associated with Acts No. 23, 2014 “about local government” in which Chapter 1, verse (6) states that “Local Autonomy is a right, and it is local autonomy’s responsibility to manage and administer individually its government and local society’s interest in the system of the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia.” Verse (7) states “Autonomy Principle is the basic principle of the implementation of local government based on local autonomy.”  Government’s Regulation No. 1, 2014 states about the election of governor, regent, and mayor; and Chapter 1, verse (23) states that “Local Government is the Governor, Regent, Mayor, and the local officers as the organizational element of the local government.”
