The president, Joko Widodo (known locally as Jokowi), began his five-year term promisingly after assuming office in October 2014, but doubts have since arisen about his ability to implement political and economic reforms.

Jokowi's lack of a power base in national politics has left him dependent on the patronage networks from which he was meant to represent a break. Although The Economist Intelligence Unit expects some progress in terms of structural reform in 2015-19, his presidency may not provide the breakthrough that many had hoped for.

The government lacks a majority in the House of People's Representatives (DPR, the legislature), but its strategy of working on an issue-by-issue basis with members of the opposition legislative coalition has proved successful so far. The president's greater political challenge lies in unifying members of his own camp and establishing his authority over them.
