With shrinking poll results, President
SBY is pulling the emergency brake.
In a move widely seen as authoritarian,
he sidelines DP chairman Anas Urban- ingrum who is threatened by corruption investigation.
How this move will be accepted by the electorate, sensitized during the Indonesian democratization process, remains to be seen. Necessary as it is to take Anas out of the limelight, the procedure may look too authoritarian for many voters.
