Political Ethics of the Presidential System in Indonesia: A Review

Dwi Andayani Budisetyowati

Abstract: The adoption of the Presidential system in Indonesia has not been problems free. This paper aims at discussing problems associated to the Presidential system on one hand and highlighting the importance of political ethics in optimizing the Presidential system. The information and data used in this paper are heavily based on literatures review. The paper argues that political ethics should be given attention in improving the implementation of the Presidential system in Indonesia. In addition, it was also found that the adoption of the presidential system in Indonesia still needs further improvement. These improvements include the authority of the presidential to dismiss the House of Representatives. Similarly, the House of Representatives cannot impeach the president unless there are conditions prescribed by the 1945 Constitution to do so. Furthermore, in the formation of the Act that is set out in Article 20 and Article 5 of the 1945 Constitution, every bill should be discussed with the President and the Parliament. This means that if the bill has been approved by both parties, then there should not be any attempts to cancel it as it happened in the case of the regional election law in recent years. Also, there is a need to have checks and balances between the President and Parliament. Finally, further improvement of the presidential system should also be conditioned together with the regional governments. Thus, much remain to be done in optimizing the implementation of the Presidential system in Indonesia.
