Abstract

Democracy is not always direct elections; we know their style of Sukarno's Guided Democracy, Liberal Democratic, Socialist Democracy and the Indonesian Democracy in fact now has its own "Pancasila Democracy", where deliberation consensus as the primary basis of decision-making in both the electoral regulations stipulate as well as electoral legislations. Most of the pro elections through the Regional Representatives Council (DPRD) assume Pancasila democracy is reflected in the elections elected by Parliament with the advantage of the state finance saving, avoiding fraud, split nation, black campaign that has been going on so massive and structured. Choosing a Leader in Parliament Election with the media is the best move forwards the implementation of Pancasila Democracy where deliberation and consensus as the primary basis in decision making. While the Election by direct election for this look has been "robbed" of the people because of the massive political legitimacy money, black and political campaigns pitting. Another advantage is more simple and efficient as well as reducing the potential for social conflict, in addition can create patterns of relationships and the DPRD head relatively harmonious. However, a group of pro with the election by parliament also a number of disadvantages election not through representatives, among others, reducing the local democratic process and encourage the strengthening of the political oligarchy and money in Parliament. While some people are pro with direct election assess local elections by the people will reflect a higher level of legitimacy than through Parliament. They assess the local elections by the people reflects the realization of the rights and sovereignty of the people, the people's participation in the elections, and strengthen legitimacy. Some other advantages of direct election, the closer the relationship between the leader and the people, the political education of the people, to institutionalize the process of deepening democracy, and ensure the election of leaders capable and acceptable. Although they admit weakness direct gubernatorial elections by the people, will be the politicization of bureaucracy, high costs, prone to conflict, and the immature state of democratic institutions, in addition to causing problematic in the implementation of the governor's role as a representative of the central government.
