Abstract

The administration of Joko Widodo is coming to its first year of the second period. Investigating his leadership is a potential issue as he is a Javanese. Furthermore, it is also regarded with and his idea to move the capital to East Borneo stating the end of the Java-centred era. This also leads to the end of structural authority in Java Island. The decision of Jokowi regarding this issue is based on technical-economical consideration and prosperity equality. Besides, Jokowi’s interaction and communication style at the State Palace gradually reduces its sacredness which was initially too formal. Every so often, his leadership can decrease political tension. Therefore, this study attempts to investigate Jokowi’s leadership representation in his second period of service. The method used in this study is discourse analysis. The results showed that Jokowi is devising an Indonesia-centred leadership style. It is particularly reflected by the development of east Indonesia which had previously never been prioritized. His figure attached by simplicity and warmth has attracted people’s attention to get closer to him as he successfully conveyed his messages through media.
