The Abelian dominance for the string tension was shown for the fundamental sources in MA gauge in the lattice simulations. For higher representations, however, it is also known that the naive "Abelian" Wilson loop, which is defined by using the diagonal part of the gauge field, does not reproduce the correct behavior. To solve this problem, for an arbitrary representation of an arbitrary compact gauge group, we propose to redefine the "Abelian" Wilson loop. By using this redefined operator, we demonstrate the "Abelian" dominance for sources in the adjoint representation and the sextet representation of \(SU(3)\) gauge group in lattice simulations.
