This paper aims to describe the practice of political primordialism after the reform era in Indonesia. The method used in this paper is library analysis (reseaach library). Data analysis was performed based on secondary data collected from books, scientific journals and research reports. This paper finds that political primordialism is depicted very strongly in the electoral political competition in post-reform Indonesia. The local elections that took place in the reform era were increasingly colored by the priority of native sons, the removal of immigrant nations, religious and ethnic minorities. In the 2019 Presidential Election, political primordialism became a selling point for politicians to win the battle that almost broke the defense of Indonesian unity. This paper concludes, strengthening primordialism in politics distorts democratic principles and poses a threat to the integrity of the nation state.
