Indonesian legislative election, 2004

Indonesian legislative election, 2004

Legislative elections were held in Indonesia on April 5, 2004. At stake were 550 seats in the lower house of the national legislature, the People's Representative Council (DPR).

The counting of more than 113 million votes took exactly a month, with the final results being announced on May 5. They showed that the former ruling party of the Suharto era, the Functional Groups Party (Golkar), led by Akbar Tanjung, had won the largest number of seats, defeating former President Megawati Sukarnoputri's Indonesian Democratic Party-Struggle (PDI-P).

Other parties with significant support included the National Awakening Party (PKB) of former President Abdurrahman Wahid, the United Development Party (PPP) of former Vice-President Hamzah Haz, the newly-created Democratic Party (PD) of President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, the Islamist Prosperous Justice Party (PKS), and the National Mandate Party (PAN) of Amien Rais.

Table of results

Voters also elected 128 members of a new upper house of the national legislature, the Regional Representatives Council (DPD). More than 7,700 candidates stood at the elections. The results of the elections determined political parties which were eligible to enter as candidates in Indonesia's first direct presidential election, which was held on July 5.
