Of the twelve parties that participated in the election, two failed to meet the electoral threshold. These are the Crescent Star Party (PBB) and the Indonesian Justice and Unity Party (PKPI). A minimum requirement of 3.5 percent of the vote was needed to win a seat in Indonesia’s House of Representatives (DPR).

Data from the KPU showed that the Indonesian electorate numbered 185.6 million (of a population that totals 250 million people), 30 percent of which (approximately 60.6 million) did not use their voting right.

Based on "Law 42 - 2008 on Presidential Elections", a minimum of 25 percent of the popular vote is required in the legislative election (or twenty percent of seats in the House of Representatives, DPR) to give a political party - or a coalition of political parties - the power to nominate a presidential candidate. Therefore, the parties are currently busy trying to form coalitions. The country’s presidential election will be held on 9 July 2014.
