The election of the leadership of the People’s Consultative Assembly (MPR) ended earlier today at nearly 4 AM. The MPR plenary resumed its session late last night (Oct. 7) after entering recess at around lunch time. By then, the United Development Party (PPP) had already decided to join Joko “Jokowi” Widodo’s Great Indonesia Coalition (KIH), having been denied a deputy speakership by the Red-and-White Opposition (KMP). Many thought this sealed KIH’s victory, but they were proven wrong. KMP’s leadership package won the majority of the votes, and completes the opposition’s dominance in Senayan.To subscribe please click here
