President Joko Widodo could lose civil society support over his failure to defend the Corruption Eradication Commission from attacks from the police, write Professor Tim Lindsey and Associate Professor Simon Butt.
Professor Tim Lindsey speaks to the ABC’s Beverley O’Connor about the significance of last year’s elections and the obstacles President Joko Widodo is likely to face as he seeks to implement his reform program.
Joko Widodo faces a hostile legislature, an overbearing party boss in Megawati Soekarnoputri, and high expectations from civil society. His selections for his first cabinet reflect these challenges. Professor Tim Lindsey explains.
