Following Wednesday's interview updating you on the economic situation in Indonesia, below is my chat with the Lowy Institute's David McRae on the political situation. Dave spoke on this topic at Monday's Lowy Institute-ANU Indonesia Mini-Update event (full audio for the event here).

Dave talks about how the emergence of Jakarta governor Joko Widodo (know as Jokowi; pictured) has changed the political scene in the last twelve months, and whether a new president will be able to restart the unfinished business of political reform. Dave also considers the legacy of President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.
