Wednesday Lunch at Lowy:Evolution of the Indonesian party system - Dr Marcus Mietzner presentation

The most significant and positive change in Southeast Asia in the last decade has been the democratisation of Indonesia, the world's fourth most populous country. Thirteen days ago, Indonesia held national parliamentary elections and it appears that the biggest winners are President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono and his Democratic Party. At the Wednesday Lunch at Lowy on 22 April, Dr Marcus Mietzner analysed the reasons for the Democratic Party's success and what this tells us about the evolution of Indonesia's political party system.Marcus Mietzner
