Author(s): Toni Wibisono, Widodo Tresno Novianto, Hari Purwadi
Abstract: In organizing the General Election, many still involve money politics, even carried out on a massive scale. Money politics is a criminal act regulated in Act Number 7 of 2017 concerning the General Election. Law enforcement and prevention of this crime are performed to produce clean and integrated officials and authority. To analyze these problems, socio-legal research was conducted. This research used a qualitative approach with data sources of primary and secondary data. Data obtained by researchers were analyzed qualitatively and presented descriptively by explaining, describing and narrating problems and their solutions. The results showed that law enforcement of of money politics has not met the goal. Viewed from the 5 factors including legal, law enforcement, infrastructure facilities, community, and cultural factors and other factor like poverty, prevention of money politics can be done by looking at the driving factors and processes of law enforcement until after the crime occurred.
