AbstractIn the debate of the substantive and procedural conceptualization of democracy, or the understanding of a democratic or non-democratic state, it is not understood as a dichotomy but as a process phenomenon so that there are levels. In the concept, regarding the most minimal procedural definition of democracy in a democracy, must contain substantive rights and freedoms. Thus, the separation or dichotomization between procedural democracy and substantive definitions becomes irrelevant. An understanding of the definition of procedural democracy in conducting election, for example, cannot be separated from the definition of substantive democracy, because even in the understanding of procedural democracy, there must be substantive freedom for voters to vote. Furthermore, there is also an understanding of the implementation of election to procedurally vote the leader in both the executive and legislative bodies. In the implementation of the elections, in order to fulfill the understanding of substantive democracy, it must be carried out fairly and justly.
