The Semarang City Regional House of Representatives is the unicameral municipal legislature of the city of Semarang, Central Java, Indonesia. It has 50 members, who are elected every five years, simultaneously with the national legislative election.

History

Semarang was granted city status (Gemeente) during the Dutch East Indies period on 1 April 1906, and a city council (gemeenteraad) comprising 23 members was formed.[1] Together with the city councils of Surabaya and Bandung, Semarang's city council was the first in the Dutch East Indies to have elected women as councillors in 1938.[2] During the Japanese occupation of the Dutch East Indies, the city government was abolished, although a 20-member advisory council was formed to support the Japanese military administrator.[1]

After the end of the revolution, a provisional regional house of representatives (DPRDS) was formed in 1950 with 34 members who were selected by a 165-member committee led by the city's mayor Koesbiyono. The 1950 DPRDS included 13 members of political parties, 7 members of labor unions, with other councillors representing other organisations.[3] The Indonesian Communist Party (PKI) held a majority in the city council following the 1955 general election and 1957 local elections. The other political parties – the Indonesian National Party, Masyumi, and Nahdlatul Ulama – boycotted the council after PKI legislators elected a PKI mayor in 1957.[4] Following the transition to the New Order, Semarang's legislative election starting in 1971 like other cities was dominated by Golkar.[5] PDI-P became the biggest party in the council after the fall of Suharto in the 1999 election, with 20 PDI-P councillors.[6]

The legislative building is shared with the mayoral office, in a Greco-Roman style building which was formerly used as a Dutch villa.[7]

Composition

For the 2024 election, 50 members will be elected to the council, with 6 electoral districts.[8] The current speaker is Kadar Lusman of PDI-P, who was sworn in on 13 September 2019.[9]
