Why Indonesian Chosed Joko "Jokowi" Widodo?

The presidential election of the Republic of Indonesia has ended recently. And now, it's time for the new government to carry out the mandate of the people to choose Joko “Jokowi” Widodo as the seventh President of the Republic of Indonesia, if the leadership of Mr. Amir Syarifuddin and Mr. Assaat as acting president at the time of the physical revolution were not taken into account. It's time for President Jokowi and Vice President Jusuf Kalla to realize their promises to the people of Indonesia as they have done during the last campaign.

Why was Indonesian prefer Jokowi as their president ultimately ? The real question is difficult to answer unequivocally. Basically, both Jokowi as presidential candidate number two and Prsabowo as the candidate number one were equally had their own charisma. Vortex of politics in Indonesia makes them both being jockeying for the position of national leadership this time.

Perhaps the smear campaign conducted to Jokowi was one of the things that made the public sympathetic to Jokowi. But maybe it actually was not. Negative issues do not stop until Jokowi elected to be president. Among them was the issue of the minister of religion whose will come from the Shia sect. Something that is sensitive in Indonesia that is largely made up of Sunni Islam.

It should be noted that when the campaign on the people and in the television debates, seemed once that Jokowi more emphasis on the technical application and implementation of programs. Although occasionally talk about something globally, he also often talk about how a program was executed.

On the last presidential debates which was broadcasted nationally on television, Jokowi also stated that a program should no longer be interpreted as a project. Connotes conduct a policy program for the benefit of the nation and the people. That he might not disclose, but we all had to understand was, a project means giving away money for persons which held the project.

In agriculture, Prabowo and Jokowi as a presidential candidate equally emphasized the need for intensification and extensification for agriculture. Jokowi targeting added one million hectares of new land for agriculture while Prabowo wants two million new land for agricultural extension. In addition, Prabowo also wants to use agricultural technology in the form of compound fertilizers that are specific to each plant.

Prabowo reasoned that by using a common compound fertilizer, fertilizer which means it is used for all kinds of plants have been shown to increase the yield of crops acquisition by forty percent. And this has been done in a hundred districts in Indonesia as well. Moreover, if compound fertilizer specific for each type of plant be used, of course, it will further increase agricultural production much more.

Jokowi wanted when the government made the decision to open a new fields of agriculture, they should first think about irrigation. The Indonesian government has been wrong in doing this. A case in point had been happened on Papua. Once the land for agriculture had been opened, it was not enough water to irrigate plants. Still according to Jokowi, it should be considered to build the dam first and then constructed of tertiary irrigation so that agricultural land is not poorness of water.

In the field of animal husbandry, Joko “Jokowi” Widodo wanted in any village to be given cows managed in an integrated manner. Not on the nursery of every farmer on their own as had been done before. Integrated intention here was to put cattle on one location and one cage. This is, in addition to facilitate supervision, could also collect livestock manure in a place that allowed to take its biogas. Biogas could be used as an alternative energy to substitute the energy needed of the villagers.

In addition, Jokowi also wanted that every village should have a form of business entity that is managed jointly by the villagers. This business entity could be in the form of cooperatives or other forms. This required improved management and performance of the village's goverment.

We hope that President Jokowi would be able to carry out the promises he did for the Indonesian community. In addition, we also expect that Jokowi retaining the spirit to work in the interests of the people as he has managed to show for it.
