Abstract

The  constitutional system  change in Indonesia usually follows the representative consultation based on the  philosophy of the country.  It is  not to  be the concepts of liberal democracy as reflected in constitution amandement, especially  about presidential election. This involves the use of liberal democracy which is against the fourth principle of Pancasila (foundational philosophical theory of Indonesia) which states that democracy is guided by the inner wisdom in   the unanimity arising from deliberations amongst representatives. The presidential election system is  different from the conventional concept that  reflects mutual cooperation. After the  UUNDRI amendment.  In the  Article 6A of  The Constitution of the Republic of Indonesia of makes the election of the President and Vice President  can be directed by the people and this was observed to affect the basic principles of the 1945 Constitution. This new system leaves  the Pancasila principles  slowly  that incidentally is the ideology of the country. The problem proposed in this article therefore was, “how is the concept of deliberations amongst representatives in Indonesia's presidential election system?” The method used was normative and the conclusion proposed is  the reconstruction efforts to re-implement the concepts of deliberation in the appointment of President by elected representatives through honest and fair general elections.
