Election could be bad for Australia Churchill caught the complexity of democracy in his famous line about it being the worst way to choose a government, except for all the other ways. Indonesia will be demonstrating both sides of this aphorism over the next few months. The good news is that Indonesia is about to choose its next government through peaceful elections. The bad news is that the outcome is unlikely to be good, and could be quite bad - for Indonesia and for ourselves. Australia's security depends on an Indonesia that is stable, prosperous, cohesive and democratic. It seems our chances of getting all four are slim.

Tommy to surrender on Monday, lawyer says Defense lawyer of the youngest son of the former president Soeharto, Hutomo "Tommy" Mandala Putra, said that his client would surrender to prosecutors on Monday to begin serving his 18 months jail term. Erman Umar said Tommy did not leave the country and would appear on Monday at the South Jakarta Prosecutors Office. "He (Tommy) is still in Jakarta and he is still free as he has not received copies of the presidential decree on his clemency refusal," he said. The statement came after Tommy was declared a fugitive after a state prosecutor and police waited in vain at his central Jakarta residence for six hours Friday night to arrest him.

Prosecutors fail to jail Tommy The threat to jail former president Soeharto's youngest son Hutomo "Tommy" Mandala Putra by force should he fail to surrender himself proved to be empty on Friday as Tommy was declared "lost" by prosecutors, after he successfully evaded receiving the presidential decree rejecting his plea for pardon. Attorney General Marzuki Darusman, however, said that he believed Tommy had not fled the country and would meet the deadline on Monday. "An arrest warrant has been issued, but we are not assuming that he's escaped. We still believe that he is in Jakarta. "If he fails to show up on Monday, we'll get him through a police manhunt," Marzuki told The Jakarta Post.
