Political Party Plow Women on DPD

AWARDING 2019 general elections many female activists are hijacked by political parties to fulfill the 30% quota as a condition to become election participants.

Thus expressed female activist, Risnawati from Sikola Mombine Institute, to Kaili Post via Whatsapp, Sunday (6/5/2018).

"This is done by many political parties to be eligible to become election participants next year and fulfill 30% women's kouata required by General Election Commission (KPU) so that many political parties hunt female cadres," she said.

This resulted in the absence of prospective members of the Regional Representative Council (DPD) RI from the women register at the Central Sulawesi Election Commission.

In addition she thinks it is unfortunate because Sikola Mombine is very encouraging political participation of women, some time ago we tried to discuss and support each other, but at our level the activists tried to consistently escort the various problems in the community, especially women.

"Another analysis of women would prefer the legislative path as a strategic space to engage in practical politics, because the budgeting and supervisory policies inherent in the DPRD, are different from the limited DPD," she said.

"I think activist friends are critical enough to see that whether they are just hijacked or a serious party in responding to Law No. 2 of 2008 article 2, paragraph 5, because the attitude of women to go into practical politics certainly departs from the concerns. Firstly, the fulfillment of women's representation quota, secondly that DPR becomes a strategic step to intervene in gender-responsive budget policy," she added.

Seeing from the absence of women representation in the Regional Representative Council (DPD) five years into the future, prove that politics is rational mathematically, transactional for who gets what.

"DPD is a single fighter at his own expense, energy and mind alone. As for the legislative candidates, they are assisted by political party machines and political party strategies, in addition to the expenses incurred or campaign spending to win the DPD seat is also very large, while for the authority of DPD is still not equivalent to the House of Representatives," she said.

Apart from that, the Sikola Mombine Institute is still doing a simple assessment, trying to get more in-depth information, so that it can get real data and information related to this situation.**
