DPRD members accommodate and follow up on aspirations in the form of DPRD main ideas from voters (constituents) through a recess mechanism. From observations and interviews, the Malang Regency DPRD has carried out primary input from 3 elements of the Public Works Department: Highways, Human Settlements and Water Resources Public Works. Communication related to primary idea input has generally gone well. Using a qualitative approach, this research examines the process of aggregating DPRD main ideas in determining the direction of development policy in Malang Regency based on the public policy implementation model proposed by Grindle (1980: 7), namely the process of successful policy implementation, the results of which depend on the program activities that have been designed and adequate funding, apart from being influenced by Content of Policy (the content of the policy) and Context of Implementation (context of implementation). This research shows that the process of aggregating the main ideas in the Malang Regency DPRD has gone well. However, according to several respondents, there are still inhibiting factors, such as the council's human resources from educational and professional backgrounds and the limited budget provided.
