President Joko Widodo highlighted the quality of democracy in Indonesia which has been moving towards a positive direction. Nevertheless, according to him, there are still things should be paid attention to, so that democracy in Indonesia can develop better. Speaking at the opening ceremony of the Democrat Party’s National Leadership Meeting 2018, Saturday, in Bogor, West Java, the President said that democracy in Indonesia is running well, marked by the amendment of the 1945 Constitution which equates the People's Consultative Assembly with other state institutions. In addition, democracy in Indonesia has also grown positively with the decentralization of government and with the multiparty system adopted in combination with the direct elections at both the regional and central levels. However, according to the President, the journey of democracy in Indonesia should still be improved especially with the freedom of opinion in the community. According to the President, the government together with political parties in Indonesia and element of the society, must participate in building political maturity in the community. The President added the development of democracy in Indonesia should also be implemented by prioritizing the welfare and prosperity of the Indonesian nation. (VOI/Andy Romdoni/Trans Alika/AHM)
