Vote-buying in Indonesia's 2014 Elections: The Other Side of the Coin
This paper is related to 1?The current electoral system in Indonesia has allowed vote-buying to flourish. As such, the intermediaries (korlap) in the process increasingly play a stronger role in determining whether and how people vote. 2?The korlap work for the candidate, but demand for monetary returns for votes also comes from the voters who see elections as a way to make short-term gains. 3?Korlap employ in-depth knowledge of their communities to effectively target and persuade potential voters to support their candidates. 4?Money politics is not just a matter of demand for and supply of votes, but is embedded in complex social relations and contexts.

Unpacking the Results of the 2014 Indonesian Legislative Election
The recently concluded 2014 legislative elections in Indonesia produced several unexpected results, as the heavily favored PDIP party failed to reach its electoral targets, despite the popularity of its presidential candidate, Jakarta Governor Joko Widodo (Jokowi). PDIP's failure to win more popular votes during these elections can be attributed to the lack of campaign advertisements promoting Jokowi as its presidential candidate, local-level campaign dynamics, possible vote-buying, and so on. The success of the Islamic parties in increasing their vote share during these elections is not the result of their increased popularity among Indonesian voters. Instead, it is the result of their strategy to recoup the votes they had lost during the 2009 elections.
