WACANA POLITIK IDENTITAS JAMAAH SYATARIAH PADA PEMILU 2019
The 2019 election that was just passed was thick with the aroma of identity politics. The issues raised are mostly related to certain groups, religions, races and ethnicities. We rarely hear issues that develop in the community about discourse on vision / mission, programs offered, and so forth. The discourse that is built around the election, both ahead of the election or until now is very dominated by the discourse on identity politics. If we listen to the conversation on social media, food stalls, associations and organizations in West Sumatra is to choose based on religion, ethnicity, groups, and others. This means that identity politics is very strongly felt in this 2019 election. A person's political choices are not based on track records, work programs, or campaign promises offered. However, the choice is based on the identity carried by the individual who is a candidate. This research was conducted qualitatively with an explanatory approach. The research aims to describe the political discourse on identity among the Sharia Pilgrims in the 2019 elections. This study also looked at the political decision of the Sharia Jamaah based on the political discourse on identity that they got. The results showed that there were three sources of identity politics discourse, namely Tuanku, the media, and relatives. Syariah.
