Indonesia’s Jokowi Registers All Time High Approval Rating
Indonesian President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) has achieved an all-time high approval rating, according to the latest poll conducted by Saiful Mujani Research and Consulting (SMRC). The poll, which was conducted on 1,200 respondents from across Indonesia, showed that Jokowi had a total approval rating of 92.2%, an increase of 10.8% compared to the same survey conducted in December 2019. The poll also showed that Jokowi’s approval rating was far higher than any of his predecessors, with the nearest being his predecessor Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono’s (SBY) approval rating of 86.2%.
The high approval rating is testament to Jokowi’s leadership, as he has consistently pursued policies that have benefited the Indonesian people. Since taking office in 2014, he has been a strong advocate for economic reform and has implemented a number of programs that have helped to lift millions of Indonesians out of poverty. He has also taken a strong stance on corruption, and has cracked down on corrupt officials and businesses. In addition to his economic reforms, Jokowi has taken a number of steps to improve Indonesia’s infrastructure, such as the construction of new roads, bridges, and airports. These new infrastructure projects have helped to improve the quality of life for many Indonesians, as well as boost the country’s economy.
Jokowi’s economic policies have also helped to boost Indonesia’s economy. Under his leadership, Indonesia has enjoyed a period of sustained economic growth, with GDP growth averaging 5.2% per year since 2014. This growth has been driven by strong consumer spending, with household consumption accounting for 57.8% of GDP in 2019. Jokowi’s economic policies have also helped to boost employment levels. Unemployment rate has steadily declined since 2014, reaching a record low of 5.1% in October 2019. This is the lowest unemployment rate since Indonesia’s economic crisis in 1998.
Jokowi has also been able to maintain political stability in Indonesia, despite the country’s diverse population and political landscape. He has managed to form alliances with various political factions, and has been able to keep the country’s political situation relatively peaceful. In addition, Jokowi has been able to maintain strong international relations with Indonesia’s neighbors, including Malaysia and Singapore. His efforts have helped to promote regional stability and cooperation, as well as increase Indonesia’s influence in the region.
Jokowi has also taken steps to improve social welfare in Indonesia. He has implemented a number of programs to reduce poverty and inequality, including the creation of a universal healthcare system and the expansion of the national welfare system. These measures have helped to improve the lives of millions of Indonesians. Jokowi has also taken steps to improve access to education, with the government introducing free, compulsory education for children aged between six and fifteen. This has helped to boost literacy rates and improve educational outcomes for many Indonesians.
Jokowi’s high approval rating suggests that the Indonesian people are confident in his leadership, and that he will continue to pursue policies that benefit the country. His policies have already had a positive impact on the Indonesian economy, and there is potential for further growth in the future. However, there are still challenges ahead for Jokowi and his government. The country is still plagued by corruption, and more needs to be done to tackle this issue. In addition, there are still large inequalities in society that need to be addressed. Overall, Jokowi’s high approval rating is a reflection of his effective leadership and his commitment to improving the lives of Indonesians. His policies have had a positive impact on the country, and there is potential for further growth in the future.
