A recent survey by the Indonesian Political Indicator Institute (IPI) revealed a decline in public trust towards the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) following legislative revisions.

The anti-corruption institution now ranks seventh out of 10 options in public opinion polls, signaling a concerning trend.

Burhanuddin Muhtadi, Executive Director of the Indonesian Political Indicator, speaking in a Sahabat ICW YouTube broadcast on Sunday, May 12, 2024, that the KPK’s standing now places it only slightly above political institutions, below the Attorney General’s Office, the National Police, and the Constitutional Court.

These claims are based on the results of the Political Indicator survey conducted from April 4 to April 5, 2024. The survey found that only 14.5 percent of respondents expressed strong trust in the KPK, while 47.6 percent indicated moderate trust.

Additionally, 25 percent of respondents expressed limited trust, while 9.6 percent declared no trust in the KPK at all. The remaining 3.4 percent of respondents did not provide an answer. Notably, the KPK ranks below both the DPR (House of Representatives) and political parties.

The highest levels of public trust are attributed to the Indonesian Military (TNI) and the President, with the Attorney General’s Office and the Constitutional Court following closely behind. Courts and the National Police also rank higher than the KPK in public trust.

This decline in public trust is deemed dangerous by Burhanuddin, who emphasizes the importance of public support for the KPK’s continued effectiveness in combating corruption in Indonesia. He calls for efforts to restore public faith in the KPK to ensure its vital role in the nation’s anti-corruption efforts.
