Being the first directly elected head of state of a country comprised of some 17,000 islands inhabited by the world's fourth largest population, broken down into literally hundreds of distinct languages and cultures, all further divided by five officially recognized religions, of which Islam, currently the world's most controversial, forms the vast majority, requires a juggling act of extraordinary dexterity. Include the dozens of political parties and the fine judgements that have to be made to accommodate all their special interests and it looks like a juggling act done on a high wire.

Voter perceptions of the qualities of individual leaders appear to play an important part in Indonesian elections, according to the earlier mentioned survey. Megawati Soekarnoputri was the clear favorite of voters according to our data, and probably pulled the Indonesian Democratic Party (PDI Perjuangan) along with her. The difference between the former Indonesian Nationalist Party's (PNI) 22 percent in 1955 and PDI Perjuangan's 34 percent in 1999 is almost certainly due in part to Megawati's appeal. Various actions of Megawati, such as her support for the reelection of Governor Sutiyoso in Jakarta, have been widely condemned. Many local observers also claim that she will be hurt by the slowness of economic recovery and by evidence that she is unwilling to fight corruption.
