Mega Snubs Shift Coalition Landscape

Summary

  • Megawati’s refusal to shake hands with Surya Paloh during the inauguration of House of Representatives members signals the change of coalition landscape. NasDem’s influence in the coalition will be getting weaker.
  • Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) will increasingly dominate the “Jokowi Coalition” since not only the party has managed to hold the most seats in the parliament, around 22 percent of total seats, but also the president himself is the party’s cadre. Added with Gerindra and Golkar, the ruling coalition in the House would have already reached more than 50 percent seats available.
  • The change of political landscape among the supporting parties of the current government will be the new face of Indonesian politics until 2024.
