“We politicians now have to compete against Netflix to get your attention,” President Jokowi told the 2018 ASEAN summit. After the watershed 2014 election, Indonesia returns to the polls next year. This panel looks past the reality TV drama to examine what’s at stake, and what Indonesians expect from the role of President.

“Sekarang ini, kami para politisi harus bersaing dengan siaran Netflix untuk mendapatkan perhatian kalian,” ujar Presiden Jokowi saat ASEAN Summit 2018. Setelah pemilihan umum tahun 2014, Indonesia kembali mengadakan pemungutan suara tahun depan. Panel ini akan membahas drama politik yang biasa ditayangkan di TV untuk menilik apa saja yang dipertaruhkan, dan hal apa saja yang diharapkan masyarakat Indonesia dari sosok seorang Presiden.
