Jakarta’s deadly riots following the formal results issued after Indonesia’s 17 April elections overshadowed what had been a peaceful process. Jokowi’s victory was a sigh of relief for the nation’s moderate voters (and global markets), but the riots left the burning question of how 68 million voters’ disappointment will play out over the next five years. Our panel investigates the price of democracy.

Kerusuhan maut di Jakarta usai pengumuman hasil resmi Pemilu 17 April di Indonesia telah menciderai kedamaian pesta demokrasi tersebut. Kemenangan Jokowi memberi kelegaan pada para pemilih moderat Indonesia (serta dunia global), tetapi kerusuhan itu meninggalkan pertanyaan penting tentang bagaimana mengakomodasi aspirasi 68 juta pemilih yan kecewa. Panel ini akan menelisik harga yang harus dibayar demi demokrasi.
