MetadataShow full item record
There is a very interesting relationship between political development and political parties, namely that both emerge as a response to the independence of the country. Malaysia and Indonesia are two countries that provide examples of how political development relations and political parties have a strong influence. Political development hopes to grow in a democratic space. But in reality, the political development in Malaysia and Indonesia at the beginning of these newly independent countries was in fact not like that especially because it was related to the existence of Islamic parties. The focus of this paper is how the development of Islamic party politics in Malaysia and Indonesia grows and develops? What is the response of the Malaysian and Indonesian governments to the emergence of the Islamic party? Is the democratic space given to the authorities by the Islamic parties? In answering the issue, the research method used is through the historical approach of archival and publishing documents. The results of the research conducted found that the political development of Islamic parties in Malaysia and Indonesia at the beginning of the establishment of the country received a negative response from the government. For reasons of development the government considers the party a barrier to development. The implication is that there is an attempt to break the Islamic party and make them enemies. So that the democratic process that should have grown in political development in Malaysia and Indonesia at the beginning of the two countries did not run fair.
