Abstract

In a democratic life, local finance accountability plays a pivotal role in preventing local government officials from abusing power. Thereby, one parameter in measuring a local finance accountability to be free from abuse of power is by providing justice value as stated in the fifth principle of Pancasila. Pancasila is Indonesia’s life philosophy. However, the present local finance accountability fails to accommodate the justice value of Pancasila as it has been centering around political relations amongst institutions, regardless of whether it has provided justice value or not. The local finance accountability without social justice value of Pancasila fails to achieve the main objective of the regional autonomy, which consequently have an impact on the social life at the nationhood and statehood levels, and finally damages the social system of the nation. Since the local finance accountability without justice value of Pancasila has a negative impact on the administration of the local government, the mechanism for local finance accountability should give room for the society/social groups participation to check whether the local finance accountability has accommodated the justice value or not. If not, such accountability needs to be reevaluated
