In the mid-2000-s, various index and watchdogs of democracy showed that Indonesia had practiced democracy well. However, Nur Rachmat said, in these last few years, the doubt surrounding the claim that Indonesia is a democratic country continues to rise as states and society are finding it hard to deal with the challenges of contemporary democracy.
