So, they are trying hard to rotate the power only in their class or between the big bourgeois parties. That’s why the government and the parliament agree to make political party regulation and other regulation that attacked people’s participation. Yes, there are many election in Indonesia, seem good in democracy but in the fact it’s just procedural democracy who can only run by the group of the people who have lot’s money.
