Abstract. In Indonesia, there is a nomination threshold often referred to as the
Presidential Threshold in the mechanism to nominate a President and his/her
Vice-President in the Election of the President. The stipulation of the threshold as
a condition for Political Parties to nominate pairs of President and Vice President
candidates in the General Election is 20% of the votes or 25% of the seats in
the Representative House in the previous legislative elections. This arrangement
caused controversy because it limited the rights of political parties as eligible
election participants in nominating candidates for the presidential position. It also
ignored political parties’ constitutional rights. The threshold requirement for pres�idential candidacy is also known in Turkey. Turkey is the only country that the
author found where the presidential nomination system uses a threshold require�ment. However, the presidential nomination threshold in Turkey is only 5% or
100,000 voters from the previous parliamentary elections. Presidential elections
in Turkey are carried out simultaneously between the legislative and presidential
elections and apply a two-round system like in Indonesia. Therefore, the threshold
for the presidential nomination in Indonesia needs to be reduced and even removed
to not restrict political parties from proposing candidate pairs for the position of
President and Vice.
