Arif Sofianto

Abstract


Muslims are the largest part of Indonesian society, but in the history of elections,
Islamic political parties have never won. The nationalist party tended to be a strong
party, whereas religion-based party tend to be a weak party. This study aims to
analyze how the influence of religion values on voting behavior during legislative
elections in the Central Java. This study was conducted in 10 electoral districts in
Central Java and it involved 400 respondents. This research used a qualitative and a
quantitative method. The result depicted that religious values were used by voters as
reference in assessing political figures whether they are good or bad, without looking
at the background of parties and ideologies. Voters are more influenced by rational
and pragmatic considerations than the leaders or religious organization.
