OPTIMALISASI KUOTA PEREMPUAN DI PARLEMEN BERDASARKAN PUTUSAN MAHKAMAH KONSTITUSI NOMOR 22-24/PUU-VI/2008.
Women's representation in elections has been limited to only 30% (thirty percent) of the total number of MPs. This shows that in addition to women's inactivity in politics, gender issues can be an indicator of the legislative candidate's victory in the general election. This is very contrary to the number of Indonesians who are mostly women. The Constitutional Court in Decision Number 22-24 / PUU-VI / 2008 affirms the concept of the constitutionality of affirmative action. The regulation on the 30% quota of women is not a large number of women in Parliament, but only on the number of women at the time of the election of legislative candidates in the General Election. This becomes an irony because it is arranged only at the time of general election that in fact then women have to compete again with men in the general election.
