Recommendation For Joko Widodo and Jusuf Kalla On Indonesian Government 2014-2019
Join Statement:
We are from various civil society organizations, congratulated Mr. Joko Widodo (Jokowi) and Jusuf Kalla, to become the President and Vice President of Indonesia from 2014 to 2019. We reminded Mr. Jokowi and Jusuf Kalla, that true victory is victory of the people or the wider community, with all the hope, the patience for suffering and imagination for a better Indonesia, as well as its participation in the vote on July 9, 2014. This is the true victory where people participate in the voting. This victory is not a victory of political elites.

Thus, a number of things to do; First, Jokowi and Kalla must quickly consolidate the people and nation's constituents. The goal is to immediately prioritize the agenda of justice and welfare. Especially for those who have been oppressed and persecuted. Jokowi and Kalla should immediately establish a participatory and egalitarian government. Not only herd on the party elites and particular interest groups alone.

Secondly, Jokowi and Kalla should not be complacent and be accommodating to the criminals, that is, names that do not deserve to get into the cabinet, or strategic positions. Such as the crimes against humanity, environmental criminals, state money’s thieves, the perpetrators of discrimination and so on. And also, do not need to accommodate a particular political group "to cross". This is suspected as an attempt to tap into the power alone.

Third, Ask Jokowi to immediately conduct a Public Consultation to draft cabinet. This is a form of public involvement, which has done much in building his victory in the last presidential election.

Fourth, Requesting current regime, namely Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono and Boediono, in order to prepare for retirement by not making the provocative policies and actions, as well as burdening the completion of the agenda of justice and the welfare of the people.
