Abstract

This paper reviews post-Suharto reforms of political institutions as the first stage of development toward democratization, which culminated in a general election. The paper examines the process of the June 1999 general election to study how Indonesians set out on the path toward democratization. The direction of the subsequent round of institutional reforms and the challenges confronting President Abdurrahman Wahid's new government to bring Indonesia to the second stage of democratization are discussed.

Keywords: political institution, democratization, Indonesia
