Jakarta regional head election

What lessons can be learned from Jakarta regional head elections recently? First is that the people of Jakarta still believe in the one divine God. Second, they see that human development is more important than physical development. Third, a sense of nationalism increases when the racial issue is raised. Fourthly, they see that the leader must have wisdom and stand up for the people, not for the financiers or just for certain groups. Leaders should be able to hear complaints from the lower class who are set aside by development. Fifth, the issue of social justice still needs to be fought even though the governance has improved a lot lately. In fact, the above reasons are consistent with Pancasila, the guidance principles of the Republic of Indonesia: /1/ Believing in God Almighty, /2/ Humanity, /3/ Nationalism, /4/ Democracy and /5/ Social justice.
