Indonesian Young Muslim Voters and Their Views on Political Islam


Indonesia as one the biggest Muslim populated country, political Islam is important case to discuss because voters’ political preference can highly be affected by their believe in this sense, it could be religion. In addition, young Moslem voters although they are important political asset, there are rarely any research in exploring their perspective toward political Islam. Therefore, this research is conducted. In conducting the research, I used mixed method as mean to prove the hypothesis and answer the research question. Non probability method with nested sampling design technique is used in this research. The participants in this research are young Moslem voters who I categorized as middle and live in Sumatera and Java Island where they come from rural and urban background. Based on the data finding and analysis, it is found that Indonesian young Muslim voters prefers post Islamism in associated with political Islam compared to Islamism and 70% of them recognize the outcome of political Islam is sharia’ization. Furthermore, post Islamism group in the research disagree with the establishment of Islamic state due to tolerance issue.
