The Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) is continuing to take over key positions at state institutions in a development likely to further consolidate its power in maintaining the status quo and its political future afloat.
The recent promotion of PDI-P politician Darmawan Prasodjo as president director of the state electricity company (PLN) to replace seasoned banker Zulkifli Zaini has prompted criticism, with the opposition Prosperous Justice Party (PKS) questioning the move, as it came at a time when PLN was doing well.
The PKS also called on the government “not to politicize” the second largest state-owned company.
