AbstractThe phenomenon of centralization in political parties is not only a phenomenon in Indonesia. From the perspective of political parties, it can be seen that maintaining the organization of political parties at the local level can be used as a source of gaining constituents. However, local organizations from political parties will be expensive for internal parties and can be a source of "political scandal" for the party. Thus, political communication carried out by political parties at the national level uses the media more than building the organizational strength of political parties to the local level. The question is to what extent do political parties need party organization at the local level? How is local power in the implementation of regional head elections not easily intervened by the power of political parties from the center? Experience in developed democrats shows that local organization political parties are still needed. This is related to the legitimacy of the political party. Campaigns for political parties at the local level can be said to be more effective. Political parties at the local level can provide political information, convince voters directly and mobilize the masses. Furthermore, the Denver study also explains that political parties at the local level can also be a source of party finance.
