Indonesia’s parliaments—at the national and regional level—are repeatedly measured in opinion surveys as having amongst the lowest levels of trust of any public institution. Only political parties consistently rate lower than the parliament. The biggest single reason why the public views the parliament so negatively is usually perceptions of corruption. Most voters also report that they rarely, if at all, meet with a member of parliament from their electoral district. The parliament clearly has a major PR problem.
