The challenge for Indonesia’s new president

Joko Widodo

Joko Widodo

In a commentary for the next issue of Governance, Marcus Mietzner of Australian National University looks at the results of last month’s election in Indonesia, the world’s fourth most populous country.  Enthusiasm over the election of Joko Widodo “is already giving way to a growing realization of the protracted problems” confronting the country, Mietzner says.  These include “the fight against corruption, economic reform, infrastructure development, and reduction of wasteful subsidies.”  Free access to the commentary.
