As a research result, in this elections, the manifesto movement for policy-centered election is developed very gradually in comparison with a series of recently elections, but also its many problems revealed. First of all, regardless of intra-democratization of political parties, changes of political party alignment and politicians' position at the time of election were the core factor to obstruct policy development and policy-based election, and parties and candidates' will and attitude for policy-centered election also need to be more improving. As a consumer of policy, voters and ordinary citizens also need to promote participative consciousness and attitude into the manifesto movement. The manifesto movement itself must be improving and realigning its present ways and strategies fitting into fundamental purpose. In conclusion, for the settlement of manifesto and policy-centered election, perception and attitude of electoral actors, namely political parties, candidates, and voters who directly recognize and practice it, is important, not the structural limits and methodological problems.
