Democracy provides space for aspirations and narratives created for the public to participate in building the progress of a nation. Democracy provides space for ideas, corrections, and rational considerations to build visions and programs for the public interest. Democracy is also a hope for all of us, as a space for contestation and a touchstone for leaders, to be able to garner support and votes for rational and constructive political mobilization.

In the 20 or more years of the reform era in Indonesia, we believe that the evolution of democracy and the effectiveness of implementing procedural democracy at this time, are in the process of achieving true quality and maturity. The role of citizen participation is getting stronger in carrying out the function of control, providing value, and making choices as the political right of every citizen who is free, sovereign and its fulfillment is protected.
