Jakarta, IO – Indonesian Survey Institute (LSI) Denny JA researcher Ardian Sopa said the results of their poll shows that only seven political parties will pass the 4 percent parliamentary threshold to win seats in the House of Representatives (DPR).
They are mainly major, well-established parties that consist of PDI-P, Golkar, Gerindra, PKB, Democratic Party, PKS and NasDem. While two others PPP and PAN may not pass the threshold.
“PPP is the only pre-Reform party that has failed to become a major party,” said Ardian, reported Katadata, Wednesday (8/2).
According to Ardian, PDI-P will come up on top with 22.7 percent, followed by Golkar (13.8 percent) and Gerindra (11.2 percent).
Ardian said the results show that small and medium-sized parties must work harder to garner votes. According to him, one of the factors that can boost their appeal is the quality of their legislative candidates and which presidential and vice-presidential candidates they support.
The survey was conducted from January 4-15, 2023 involving 1,200 respondents in 34 provinces through direct interviews and qualitative research complemented by focus group discussions and media analysis. (un)
