Elections that are held in an honest, fair, and peaceful manner are one of the parameters of democratic governance. However, as the culmination of the contestation, the general election is an arena of conflict and at the same time can function as an instrument of conflict resolution. The success of a democratic general election is not only determined by the implementation of the ballot, but also by the transparent and fair resolution of conflict disputes. This study aims to: 1) determine the causes of conflict in the gubernatorial election in Lampung; 2) explain the implications of the conflict, and 3) explain conflict resolution. This type of research is descriptive and qualitative. Data collection was obtained from the results of interviews with informants, document studies, and literature. The results of the study show that first, the root of the conflict began with the proposal to cancel the victory of the elected governor and deputy governor candidates for the 2009-2014 period, Sjachroedin and Joko Umar Said. Second, although in the end the elected candidate pair was sworn in, the implication is that the relationship between the governor and the Lampung Provincial KPU is not harmonious. This background triggered further conflicts between the Governor and the Regional People's Representative Council; conflict between the Governor and the General Election Commission; and internal conflicts within the organization of the General Elections Commission. Third, the conflict resolution between the Governor and the KPU of Lampung Province is carried out through the method of self-regulation of conflict resolution or self-regulation without involving third parties. The mechanism used is to hold meetings, both regular and plenary meetings, and a personal approach to conflicting parties. The parties involved in the conflict develop strategies and tactics to achieve the goals of conflict resolution. Thus, formal and informal interactions occur between the two conflicting parties to create collaboration or compromise (win and win solutions). Keywords: General Election Commission, Governor Election, Conflict, Resolution.
