Indonesia’s political forecast: Cloudy

Just read a really good, really comprehensive article on last week’s PDI-P party congress, entitled, What We’ve Got Here is a Failure to Communicate. Its conclusion says it all, but I certainly suggest reading the entire piece. In short, President Jokowi received a very chilly reception and was publicly reminded by the party’s chief patron and former president, Megawati Sukarnoputri, veiled terms that she’s in charge and he’s to fall in line. For anyone wondering how much tension exists between Jokowi and Megawati, this is a very interesting read.
