Governor of Jakarta Elect: First of All, The Vote of Dissatisfaction

Come, central Java, first of all, good admin, the new elected Governor of Jakarta 2012 has benefited of a fed up. What speculate?

Canals and waterways are polluted beyond belief, traffic jams seem insurmountable. By dint of tap water in its basement. Jakarta, ten million inhabitants ready sinking and will soon be under the sea level. Successive administrations have left a feeling of powerlessness. Solo city Major, a city average that it has reorganized, rather charismatic, Joko Widodo a.k.a Jokowi, emerged on September 20 against the outgoing Governor, Fauzi Bowo, supported by the Government and political elite. 54% of the vote: a net win.

This vote reflects a general dissatisfaction. Nothing says so far that Jakarta is governable. Jokowi must first overcome opposition from the Legislative Council, where it has only 17 votes out of 94. Then, this reformer told insensitive to the benefits will have to find some difficult recipes. How to turn the slums in areas where we can live? Where to find the funding needed to drain channels, limit pollution, clean up in traffic? While contributing substantially to the GNP of the Indonesia, Jakarta is often a negation of urban planning.

This vote is also a reaction to what is wrong in Indonesia. The economy is solid, but the promises of the rulers are not required. Triumphantly reelected (60% of the vote) in 2009 for a second and final term, president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (SBY) proved well soft in its fight against corruption, yet his electoral battle horse. He is hardly concerned by restoring his Democrat party to the discredited management. It has not organized his estate in 2014. The Parliament, one of the most corrupt police and justice institutions, legislates all small doses. The political class is backward-looking.

This time, the created air call was picked up by an apparently honest politician. But he is not alone in this case: the King make rand the financier of the election of Jokowi – was Prabowo Subianto general scratched frames, both controversial and popular enough to be, at the moment, the candidate in the best position in the race for the Presidency in 2014. Many things can change in the coming two years. But Prabowo, a man of authority and whose methods were shocked when he was still military, should be able to continue to count on public opinion that is discouraged by the attitude of the current political class. Renewal of a political class or rebirth of the autocracy?
