Abstract: The Indonesian democratic transition of 1998 led to the proliferation of political parties, many of them Islamic. Among the most significant is PKS (Partai Keadilan Sejahtera). In the 2007 Jakarta elections it failed to achieve victory, but received 42% of the vote running against a coalition of 19 other parties. This commentary explores the party’s religious orientation, organizational structure and its conduct of the 2007 Jakarta elections.
