In the Indonesian Democracy Era, particularly during the recent Jakarta Governor's Election in September 2012, there is a significant positive trend occurring in Jakarta, which shows that Big Political Parties in Jakarta, cannot compete with the People's Direct Voting Desires Right on which type of Governor the peoples wanted to choose and elect;
- The people of Jakarta which consists of various ethnics, cultures, belief system background, prefers to be governed by an honest, humble, and uncorrupted officer, which they believe are shown in the figure of Jokowi-Ahok;
- Since Indonesia had experienced democracy since 1998, after the fall-down of the late President Soeharto, the people are getting smarter as to what type of Governor and leader they prefer to rule Jakarta as the Capital City of Indonesia; There are of course the same issues of traffic jam, flood, medical, schooling and public transportation, which are faced and suffered by the people of Jakarta, during these latest years, which had to be seriously tackled by the New Elected Governor of Jakarta : Jokowi - Ahok; Your Ad Here
The people of Jakarta are fed up with all the corrupted officer, who seemed to be immune from the law, and also the attitude of the People House of Representatives of Indonesia who in fact, appears to be only busy with their Political Parties' interest and not the people as a whole. So the people feels that their real wants and interests are actually not being represented by the People House of Representatives
- By having succeeded in electing the honest and integrated Governor - Vice Governor like Jokowi and Ahok for Jakarta, it demonstrates that at least there is high a "level of trust" from the people of Jakarta to Jokowi and Ahok (Basuki) which hopefully could be regarded as a "Barometer of Real Democracy" for all parts of election of Governor in Indonesia including for the coming President Election in the Year 2014.
