- Pancasila democracy, consensus, representativeness, deliberation, and wisdom
The practice of democracy in the post-reformation Indonesia tends to be liberal. Since amendment of the 1945 Constitution in 1999-2002, politics was becoming very open. However, some experts said that Indonesian democracy after reformation was not Pancasila democracy anymore. The objective of this study was identifying malpractices and problems of democracy practice in the light of logical structure of Pancasila as an ideology or a way of thinking and practice in politics. The writer tried to understand the gap between the ideal and reality of democracy practice in the post-reformation Indonesia. He used philosophical approach. The dialectic between ideal and reality on democracy in current Indonesian politics was discussed philosophically in the light of Pancasila ideology. The data in this study were collected from library, scientific journals, and the websites. The data were analyzed in the light of Soekarno-Hatta's theory on Pancasila democracy. This study concluded that in the post-reformation Indonesia, the implementation of Pancasila democracy has been declined. The decline could be seen at malpractices of post-reformation democracy such as political oligarchy, money politics, procedural-transactional politics, and some problems of four times amendment. Those malpractices and problems were caused by such decline. The writer recommend to Indonesian political scientists to rearrange political order based on the logical structures of Pancasila democracy through the fifth limited amendment of the 1945 Constitution. The logical structures are mufakat (full agreement, consensus), perwakilan (representativeness), and musyawarah (deliberation)
