Politics of Indokistan takes place in framework of combination from national ideologies of social democracy and pancasila, with minor influences from Islam as religion that professed by majority of its citizens, despite its secular status.
Indokistan is a federal presidential republic with president serve as both head of state and head of government. Indokistan profess direct democracy that hosted under one legislative body named National Forum of Indokistan.
The last constitution amended in January 2011 has been suspended after a referendum in May 2013 and calls from citizens to create a new constitution. Indokistan currently runs its government without a constitution, and its now rely on "basic laws" created by convention.
First constitution of Indokistan come into force since November 21, 2011 after the draft of text were approved by the parliament at that time. The first constitution of Indokistan acts as the basic law for the nation, it also manages the basic forms of politics, government and social rights. It later amended in January 2012 and suspended in May 2013.
Executive power in Indokistan are hold by President of Indokistan that act both as head of state and head of government. President are elected for 18 months without consecutive term. President establishes council of ministers and obligated to attend the forum session in every meeting.
Cabinet of Indokistan (Kabinet Indokistan), is a council of ministers that consists of minister of internal affairs, minister of foreign affairs, minister of economy and financial, minister of defence and law, and minister of society and tourism, and it is composed by president for one year term.
Since Indokistan adopted direct democracy as one of its principles, all citizens are automatically accepted as the member of national legislature. It is hosted by National Forum of Indokistan and is headed by head of forum, president also obligated to attend every session of the forum.
Indokistan applies nonpartisan democracy which makes Indokistan will never allowing its citizens to establishing political parties. Since all political activities in Indokistan are not based on political parties, but based on each individuals. Small number of citizens and its inneffectivity makes the government decides to ban political parties, also with historical references that political parties in Indokistan never having significant influence on its political life.
Despite of that policy, Indokistan once have political parties that divided by eras. On its independence and early era, Indokistan was started by 5 political parties and then shrinked to 3 parties, the national, communist and Islamic party. Dominating communist party then overthrown the democratic government to form the so-called socialist Indokistan which makes Indokistan experiences its first single-party era.
After the January Revolution, the multi-party system are re-adopted and the last 3 parties that exist before the communist regime, reestablished with new name. Since June 2011 until June 2012, Indokistan has used a single-party system, due to the problem in Islamic Party of Indokistan and a suggestion from Farhan Abdurrahman to unite all parties in Indokistan. Since the establishment of the single-party system, there will be no more legislative elections, because the parliament is united under a single ruling party.
The last time Indokistan has a politcal parties were started on June 2012, when Bobodolands government decision to establish Islamic Development Party was accepted by government, makes Indokistan has 2 political parties, together with United Peoples Party before it was disbanded.
President of Indokistan is the only person in the government to be appointed through an election, as obliged by constitutiton. He later appoint ministers and obliged to attend the national forum sessions.
Referendum also can be held if that action is necessary, referendum are held to create a final decision about something important to be changed in the government. Referendum act are passed by the government together with the national forum.
Presidential election is the main election accomodated by the government to appoint new president democratically through a fair manner. The election was held in every 18 months, when the president term is over. Everything about election is managed through a federal law.
Since the new laws implemented in the government about political party, Indokistan will never have a new political party since Indokistan profess non-partisan democracy, parliament members will not appointed through an election because of direct democracy in Indokistan. Before that period, the parliamentary elections were already held for 2 times, when Indokistan still have 5 parties in December 2010 before the communist rule, and the last one was on March 2011 after the previous parliament being dissolved, under direct order of Farhan Abdurrahman.
