INN – Indokistani government finally creates new term to describing the system of governance of the Federal State. It was codified after deliberations among National Forum members on how to describe the national system, which was concluded in the last day of April.

Indokistani system will be described as: “direct democracy with fusion of powers between legislative and executive, on which the system resembles the traditional Indonesian ‘Musyawarah’ tradition”.  “Indokistani direct democracy”, as President Farhan Abdurrahman called, “this system is unique among micronations”.

The unique feature of this system is on how the system manages intertwined relationship between the President and the National Forum. The system dictated in the constitution, which was officially used in January 2015.

Indokistani constitution ordered that the President should be the head of the National Forum. He can call all citizens to the forum and call for a new session, moderated, and directed the National Forum runs. This showed how the executive intervened the legislative.

National Forum main task is to create and amend laws, but it also become an advisory council for the president. In this system, the National Forum is able to impeach its own head of parliament – the president.

This system resembles the traditional Indonesian Musyawarah tradition, particularly a practice called “rembug desa”, on which village leaders and villagers gather to discuss on one particular problem and to solve it together. This practice usually took place in a small village with strong bonds between each members.

One of the people involved there, Nabil Ihsan, told that “it is quite difficult to obtain right word to describe this system in paragraph”. He also said that this system is easy to be used in micronations, and bring possiblities that Indokistan is may not the sole user of this kind of system.

On his statement responding this, Presiden Farhan said “As a system agreed entirely by all Indokistani citizens, direct democracy has served this country well. And the fact that it resembles ‘Musyawarah’, a form of democracy in rural parts of Indonesia, makes it all the more valuable for us”
