Quick Reference

Indonesian Muslims Party. Indonesian political party formed in 1960 after the popular Islamic modernist party Masjumi was banned by the Sukarno government. Many Masjumi members joined Parmusi, but they were prohibited from taking leadership positions in the new party by the military-led government, which sought to limit the power of Muslim parties. Following a poor election showing in 1971, when it received only 5.36 percent of the vote, Parmusi joined with other Muslim parties to form the Partai Persatuan Pembangunan (PPP, Development Unity Party) in January 1973.
