Megawati Megawati, Absori Absori


This research aimed to figure out the concept of deliberation in the Indonesian constitutional system and the Pancasila-based context. This research used the normative study methods and philosophical approach as the research methodology. According to the results of this research, it can be concluded that the democracy development in Indonesian constitutional practice was more directed to the modern system or, in other words, was more directed to the liberalism (election) rather than the traditional system (discussion). Thus, the democracy in Indonesia was not in parallel with the aspiration and the purpose of the country arranged by the founder of the Indonesian nation, which was aspired by the Pancasila-based nation and the 1945 Constitution of the Republic of Indonesia.



Keywords: deliberation, democracy, Pancasila.
