C. History of Political System in Indonesia
History of Indonesian Political System can be seen from the political processes that occur within it . But on the parsing is not enough just to see Indonesia's history but needed to be more effective system analysis . In the political process in which there is usually a functional interaction is a process flow that rotates to maintain its existence . The political system is an open system , because the system is surrounded by an environment of challenge and pressure . In analyzing the system can approach it like from the point of view of the party system , but it also can not be seen from the traditional approach by projecting a history of just shooting a glance . The approach should be done with an integrative approach is a systems approach , actor - proposition - purpose and decision making
The political process should imply the existence of a system 's capabilities . Capabilities of the system is the system 's ability to face the reality and challenges . This view of success in the face of these challenges differ among political experts . Political expert classical antiquity as Aristotle and Plato and followed by liberal theoreticians of the 18th century and 19th saw political achievement is measured in terms of morale. While in the modern era of political experts see it from the level of achievement ( performance level ) is how much influence the environment in the community , society and the environment outside the international environment .
This influence will bring political change . As for the political actors can change from the political elite , or the political infrastructure of the group and of the international environment .
These changes and the amount of content in the form of input and output streams . Proes converting inputs into outputs carried out by the keeper ( gatekeeper ) .
There are 5 performance assessment capabilities into a political system :
1 . Capability Extractive , namely the ability of natural resources and human resources . The ability of natural resources are usually still potential to the maximum and then used by the government . As with the management of petroleum , mining when it comes domestic investors that would provide revenue for the government in the form of taxes . Tax is then turn on the country .
2 . Capability Distributive . Natural resources owned by the community and the state is processed in a manner to be distributed evenly , for example such as food distribution is required to be uniform throughout the community . Similarly, the state income taxes as it should be re- distributed from the central to local governments .
3 . Capability Regulatory ( settings ) . To hold the control behavior of individuals and groups are needed for regulating . Regulation individuals often led to conflict of opinions. Like when the government tightened regulations require it later , this resulted in unfettered community involvement .
4 . Capability symbolic , meaning the government's ability to be creative and selectively create policies that will be accepted by the people . The more acceptable government policy created the better capabilities of symbolic systems .
5 . Capability responsive , in the political process there is a relationship between the input and the output , the output of the extent to which government policy is influenced by the input or participation by the public as the size of the input will be responsive capability . domestic and international capabilities . A country can not live alone in the globalized world today, even now many countries that have the capability of extractive form of international trade . Minimal in this international capability rich or powerful country ( superpower ) provides grants ( grants ) and loans ( loans ) to developing countries .

Indonesian state was one of the countries in Southeast Asia , and became one of the pioneer , pioneer , and founder of the establishment of ASEAN . The geographical position of Indonesia is located between two oceans are the Pacific Ocean and Atlantic Ocean , and flanked by two continents , namely Asia and the continent of Australia .
According to Article 1 , paragraph 1 , Indonesia is a unitary state in the form of the Republic . According to the Constitution of 1945, sovereignty belongs to the people , and executed by the Constitution . System of government that is based on state law ( rechsstaat ) . In other words , government administrators are not based on other powers ( machsstaat ) . On the basis of this law , then Indonesia is not a country that absolutism ( unlimited power ) . Since the birth of the reform by the end of 1997, the nation of Indonesia has been a change in the Indonesian system , ie from a centralized to decentralized or regional autonomy .
After the enactment of the Constitution No. . 25 of 1999 on Financial Balance between Central and Regional Government , and Law. 28 of 1999 on the Implementation of the State Government is free of corruption , an early milestone of the implementation of the system of regional autonomy in Indonesia .
Here are some tools that state officials in Indonesia are becoming critical success of Indonesia in building and creating a desired goal state based on the 1945 Constitution .
Indonesian state government system can be interpreted in two parts , namely in the narrow sense and in a broader sense . In a narrow sense is composed of the executive branch of government , namely :
1 . Levels center . Includes the president and vice president , ministers and agencies that are within its scope .
2 . Levels area include :
a. Province consisting of the governor and vice governor , assisted by a service - SINas

While in a broad sense includes all fittings dalah countries , namely the MPR , DPR , DPD , President and Vice President , CPC , MA , MK , KY , and specialized institutions ( the Commission , the Commission , and the Central Bank )
Government of Republic of Indonesia can not be separated from the Pancasila as the State and the Constitution as the Constitution . Between Pancasila and the Constitution of the relationship can be related , Pancasila Pancasila used are set out in the Preamble to the Constitution . In the elaboration of constitutional Constitution is the basic essence of Pancasila .
The system of government in the world today consists of the Presidential and Parliamentary . There are some differences between the two systems . In a presidential system the focus is on presidential power , while the country with the focus of parliamentary power is in parliament , not the President or the Prime Minister .
In Indonesia, the country fittings consist of :
1 . The Executive , namely institutions that manage state government agencies in both the central and regional levels . At the central level , headed by the president and vice president . Sedangkat by the provincial governor and vice governor , for the next tungkat city government headed by the mayor and vice mayor and district by district heads and Wabub . The principal tasks of the institute is to carry out administration .
2 . Legislature that includes DPR , Provincial DPRD , DPRD city / county and DPD . Parliament and Council are elected through political parties in the election , while the DPD selected through nonparpol and non- military in the elections . The key task of the Parliament is to make laws together with the government , while the DPD kedaeraan filed a bill to be discussed with the House .
3 . Constitutive . This institution is the embodiment of merging the power of the legislature . If the DPR and DPD combines self and convened according to the Act , it will form the MPR . MPR memfunyai many tasks and the most important is to change the Constitution and menentapkan
4 . Eksaminatif or CPC is authorized institution menaudit financial condition of the state . The results of this monitoring will be reported to the DRP to be studied .
5 . Judiciary . Judiciary consists of the Supreme Court, Constitutional Court , and KY . Each of these institutions have their respective functions in accordance with Law . MA serves hear the case on appeal and examine the legislation under the Act . While the Court has tested these laws function above Act and dissolve political parties . While KY useful to determine the nominees .
In the Indonesian government if the president died or was unable to then vice-president who succeeded him . But if both are absent or deceased then there are three ministers who had to replace them at the same time , the interior minister , foreign minister , and Minister of Defense and within the deadline set by law . Period shake a president or vice president is 5 years or 1 period . Neither the president nor the vice president may be re-elected for the same handshake only for one period . So the president and vice president can assume the same for the two periods .

1 . The People's Consultative Assembly ( MPR )

Based on the original manuscript of the 1945 Constitution stated that sovereignty is in tanganrakyat and performed entirely by the People's Consultative Assembly . In other words pemegag MPR is the organizer and popular sovereignty . MPR is considered to be the embodiment of the people who hold the sovereignty of the state ( Vertretungsorgan des Willems des Staatvolkes ) .
However, after the amendment of the 1945 Constitution , the content of Article 1, paragraph ( 2 ) becomes " Sovereignty belongs to the people and carried out in accordance with the Constitution " .
