Indonesia: Corruption, crisis and disillusionment

04/06/2004, As over 120 Millon Indonesians went to the polls on April 5th they were faced with a stark choice. Of the two major parties on offer was incumbent Democratic Party of Indonesia led by President Megawati Sukarnopoutri which for the past 5 years has failed to tackle any of the problems facing the ordinary people of Indonesia. The other major "choice" open to voters was Golkar, the party machine which supported the military dictator of 30 years, Soeharto.

The victims also include the many hundreds physically injured some of whom will experience psychological trauma for the rest of their lives.
