The multi-party system in Indonesia is a good way to convey a variety of ideas and interests with positive political participation, according to President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.

“The multi-party political system has become a challenge and opportunity in our effort to strengthen our democracy and as a means for us to convey our ideas and interests with positive political participation,” the president said during the Bali Democracy Forum here on Thursday.

According to him, the multi-party system was in line with Indonesia’s pluralistic community because it reflects a variety of interests and differences.

But, he warned, the differences should not impede constructive dialogue and debates.

“Although one often hears the complaint that the political process in Indonesia is long and complex, I believe we will gain many advantages from the constructive dialogues and debates among the political parties, “ he stated.

The president made assurances that Indonesia would continue to study the multi-party political democratic system in the interest of the nation.

Theme “Consolidation of Democracy in Pluralistic Societies,” the 6th Bali Democracy Forum is being attended by three heads of state/government—President Yudhoyono, Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah of Brunei Darussalam, and Prime Minister Xanana Gusmao of Timur Leste—in addition to 86 representatives from the Asia-Pacific region and a number of international observers from outside the region.
