Faiz Zaki, Jakarta – A recent survey conducted by Indonesian pollster Lembaga Survey Indonesia (LSI) found that 40 percent of its respondents were dissatisfied with the country's anti-corruption stance.
LSI executive director Djayadi Hanan explained this in a Youtube press release on Sunday, May 22, "There are 40 percent agreeing that eradicating corruption is in a bad condition with only 24.1 percent of respondents believing otherwise."
The survey's 1,273 respondents viewed badly of the anti-graft institution Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) especially compared to other law enforcement institutions in the country ranks just sixth behind the Indonesian National Police (Polri), Constitutional Court, and Supreme Court.
Hanan elaborated that this condition has been unchanged since the introduction of a new KPK Law.
"KPK has not been ranked as highly as before the new law was introduced. The KPK would usually take the third spot but is now just sixth below the national police institution," he explained.
LSI conducted the survey with random digit dialing as its main method to gather samples from those aged 17 years old and beyond. They claym it has a 2.8 percent margin of error and has 95 percent level of confidence.
Meanwhile, a legal expert from STH Jentera Jakarta, Bivitri Susanti, argues that the general public is still finding it difficult to find the distinction between law enforcement institutions, such as the role of handling acts of corruption between the Attorney General's Office and the KPK.
