Overall Overhaul but Still Riddled with Problems: Indonesia Ten Years after Suharto’s Downfall
Indonesia under the rule of President Suharto had a completely different political system than the current one. This change refers to the now existing political freedoms, the free and fair character of elections, the decentralisation process, and the declining number of human rights violations. However, there are still some remnants of the old political order, such as personal continuities within the political and economic elites, the political influence of the military, and the ongoing corruption and collusion. Indonesia today cannot be regarded as a full-fledged democracy, but its political system is definitely more democratic than authoritarian. It has a reached a substantial level of stability, so that there will be no return to authoritarianism but also no essential democratic deepening in the near future.
