Country's illness not cured yet

Unfortunately President Abdurrahman Wahid has, up to now, not brought any good fortune to the nation and country even though he possesses a strong legitimacy to rule this country.

The political elite are at odds with each other and most of the time are only thinking of their own interests. Nonetheless, the President is continuing to say controversial things which confuse many people while doing nothing significant to cure the country's illnesses.

"Supremacy of law" is merely lip service while the problems of corruption, collusion and nepotism, along with violence and social unrest remain unresolved. Who is to blame for all these things? And who really benefits from this situation?
