La Ode Muhaimin
Abstract: Impeachment of the Regional Head in the middle of the term of office in Law no.23 of 2014 is designed in several models. Each has different reasons and procedures. Differences in reasons and procedures are closely linked to the relation between the Center and the Region in the unitary state system and impeachment models in the presidential government system. This study aims (1) To describe the system of impeachment of the Regional Head directly elected by the people. (2) Formulate an impeachment model of the Regional Head in the unitary state system in line with the President's impeachment in the presidential government system. This research is a normative law research conducted by examining library materials or secondary data. The material of this research is the primary law material that is the legislation concerning the impeachment of the Regional Head. Impeachment design of Regional Head in Law no.23 of 2014 contains a weakness in the form of procedural deviations at the level of implementation and the incision of authority between the Central Government and the Regional Government. The reason lies in the removal of reasons for impeachment away from the characteristics of impeachment of President/Vice President in presidential system.
