Women have equal rights to take part in politics. Their representative in 2018 local elections of Malang City is very important. It was the topics to be discussed in a talk show on Thursday (08/Feb/2018) at Kosmonita Radio 95.4 FM. The event invited Maulina Pia Wulandari, Ph.D, a lecturer at Communication Science Department Faculty of Social and Politics Brawijaya University as an academia representative and Deni Bachtiar as the delegate of Malang City KPU (General Election Commissions) members.

According to Pia, in Malang City Local Elections which will be conducted on 21 June 2018, communities especially women are expected to take active roles to use their votes as whatever happens is the result of a political decision. "Women's votes are very important unfortunately many of them think that what is politics? Just make a lie to the people," said Pia.

Therefore, political education is necessary which are able to encourage women so as they are willing to use their voting rights, with the right language option for women entities specifically. "I expect there is a political education from educational institution and parties for communities especially women so as they are willing to use their voting rights in Malang City local elections. Language selection is important, we shall talk in accordance to our communicant," said Pia.

On the other hand, Deni Bachtiar also agreed to expect the Malang residents' active roles in using their voting rights during PILWALI (Mayoral Election) in this June. "We also hoped that all women can participate, mothers in particular, to motivate them so as they are willing to come at the time of voting," said Deni. [Rama/Humas FISIP/Humas UB/trans.
