Various policies have been carried out to increase women political representation, but currently the quota 30% has not been reached yet. This study analyzes the factors that influence the lack of women political representation from the perspective of women representation in the political parties- management as one of the obstacles in the achievements of 30% of women in politics. This is a qualitative research that was conducted with primary data from interviews and secondary data regarding the management of political parties at national and local levels. The results of this study indicate that the regulation that obligate to political parties to accommodate 30% of women in national level of party management is very effective. All the political parties in the national level meet this rule. This regulation also has impact in the tendency to accommodate 30% of women in political party management at the local level, both at the province and district level. However, the higher the level of party management, the lower the percentage of women in the position of top management of political party. The position of women in political party officer is still dominated by the position as treasurer, which is in line with the stereotype of women who are more thorough and diligent. The lower the level of party management, the higher the percentage of women position as party treasurers.
