The People's Representative Council is the lower house of the legislature of Indonesia. In Bahasa Indonesia it is called the Dewan Perwakilan Rakyat or DPR. Before the 2004 election, the DPR had 500 members, of whom 462 were elected by proportional representation from each of Indonesia's 27 provinces, and 38 were chosen to represent the Indonesian armed forces and police. From 2004 these seats have been abolished, and the new DPR will have 550 members elected by the people.
