Election organizers in Indonesia’s general elections are often accused of being an obstacle to the growth of democracy. The position of election administrators is a very serious problem for the growth of Indonesian democracy. The reason is very simple: Indonesia’s democracy failed during the New Order era which was supported by election administrators. The New Order was an opaque democracy for Indonesia’s democracy because election administrators were inseparable from the authoritarian regime. Even in the early days of reform, election management was very disappointing and became a source of new problems. When the election organizers namely the General Election Commission - KPU (Komisi Pemilihan Umum) were asked to supervise their work by establishing the Election Supervisory Body – Bawaslu (Badan Pengawas Pemilihan Umum) in 2008 it was real evidence of poor performance that. The emergence of the third election organizing body, namely the Honorary Election Organizing Council - DKPP (Dewan Kehormatan Penyelenggara Pemilihan Umum) is a sign that election administrators behave badly in building a dignified election process. The big concern is the difficulty of holding dignified general elections in the 2024 national simultaneous elections. Key words: Democracy; General election; Eleciton organizer; Professionalism; Dignity
