HistoryEdit

The council was first founded in 1950, with Djaja Rahmat as its speaker. The council, which was called a "temporary provincial council" (Indonesian: Dewan Perwakilan Rakyat Daerah Sementara) initially had 60 members. Before 1950, a similar body was present which was headed by Oto Iskandar di Nata. After being renamed to its present name in 1955, the number of councillors went up from 60 to 75, down to 74, before becoming the present 100.[1]
