Village head elections (pilkades) are political activities / events that show how the process (party) of democracy is at the village level. Pilkades is not merely a transfer of leadership for the sustainability of government and development in the village, or how a power struggle with a campaign strategy is carried out in order to get sympathy and support from the village community, but more than that it concerns prestige / dignity and honor so that it often creates tough competition and conflict. Since the enactment of Law no. 23 of 2004 and now Law no. 32 of 2014 concerning Regional Government, regional heads are directly elected by the people.
