TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Indonesian Military (TNI) and the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) are praised as the two most trusted national institutions according to a poll conducted by Charta Politika and Asumsi.
“TNI and KPK still top the list,” said Charta Politika researcher Muslimin in South Jakarta on Tuesday, August 28.
According to Muslimin, the poll result shows that the level of confidence towards TNI is 73.5 percent while KPK scored 73.4 percent. The poll was conducted through a random phone interview among 800 respondents in eight major Indonesian cities with a 3.46 percent margin of error.
Taking the third spot is the ‘presidential institutions’ that scored 68.5 percent among participants. “President Jokowi’s image is one of the driving factors,” said Muslimin. Meanwhile, the national police (Polri) scored 50.4 percent.
Furthermore, the Charta Politika researcher said that the House of Representatives (DPR) ranked fifth with 49.3 percent, which he deemed an improvement. Unsurprisingly, political parties scored the lowest with 32.5 percent.
