Executive Director of Indonesia Political Review (IPR) Ujang Komarudin said there was very little chance for Joko Widodo (Jokowi) to be able to serve as president of the Republic of Indonesia for three terms.
Even though at the same time, Jokowi still has the highest electability as a presidential candidate in the 2024 presidential election.
This is because, said Ujang, steps are needed to consolidate parties in parliament to change the rules that allow a person to serve as president for three terms.
“The constitution says that the president’s term of office is two terms. If there are three terms, he must amend the constitution,” said Ujang in a short message to JPNN, Wednesday (24/2), this afternoon.
Apart from being difficult, said Ujang, a presidential term of up to three terms undermines democracy and has the potential for corruption. “Power that is too long will tend to be abused. Power that is too long will also corrupt,” said Ujang.
“The two periods are enough for a president, because the people might get angry later, not giving opportunities to others. Two periods are the best way for this nation and for new opportunities,” he explained.
For information, Jokowi’s name is still in the top position as a presidential candidate (candidates) if there is a general election or an election is held when the survey is conducted, is this just a poll or . (dendi / henri / pn)
