The research method using a systematic literature review can find out what happened in Indonesia during the COVID-19 pandemic through published articles. The search for scientific literature was carried out using Mendeley References through the keywords digital technology and covid-19. The data obtained regarding the issue of digital technology and covid-19 and research in the territory of Indonesia obtained 80 articles.

The National Democratic Party's strategy in facing the 2019 Election with an open proportional representation system is to recruit celebrities as voters. Their placement as candidates for state administrators risks injuring the substance and objectives of democracy, because candidates for state administrators must have certain ideologies and competencies as well as the replacement of ideological cadres by celebrities. This qualitative research uses the literature study method for data collection. The purpose of this study is to find out the pragmatism of the national democratic party in an open proportional electoral system. From the results obtained, political parties tend to leave ideological cadres rather than representing members and the wider community. The Nasdem Party finally saw that celebrities are part of professional actors who have the ability as celebrity politicians although in practice they play more roles as celebrity endorsers. Placement of celebrities as candidates for state administrators is a necessity for sales-oriented parties. However, it is necessary to consider the risks to the aims and substance of democracy.

Mandalika Special Economic Zone (SEZ) on the island of Lombok was developed in 2014. One of its mega-projects is the construction of the International MotoGP Circuit, which has started to be used in November 2021. Ideally, residents around the SEZ will be the people who will benefit the most from the presence of this particular area. This goal can be reached if public information from the government regarding the project can be known and trusted by residents to increase their active participation in the future. This research was conducted in September 2020 to measure the perception of the quality of public information about the construction of the MotoGP circuit, which includes sources of information, the credibility of information, and readiness to participate in the development of the new economic and tourism center. The results showed that the primary sources of information for the community around the Mandalika SEZ area, namely four villages in the Pujut sub-district, were local community/religious leaders at 30%, social media (23%), mass media at 15%, local government 15%, and others (stories from neighbors, and 'do not know) as much as 13% and schools/campus (5%). On the information credibility, almost all respondents (82%) trust the information provided by the local government regarding the development of the Mandalika SEZ and the MotoGP circuit. Around 14% still feel doubtful, and 4% of respondents do not believe it. On the aspect of readiness to participate, half of the respondents expressed doubts (52%) that they could take a role and benefit from the presence and progress of the development of the Mandalika SEZ, especially the MotoGP circuit. As many as 18% said they were not sure. Meanwhile, those who feel confident are 22%, and 8% are very sure. The minimal role of the local government as a source of development public information has implications for the attitude of unpreparedness to participate by residents around the Mandalika SEZ.

The Job Creation Act (Omnibus-Law) contains several policies that have led to a protest movement in the form of demonstrations related to this regulation. The demonstration was widely covered by online news media in Indonesia. The research method used is qualitative by using news articles as the unit of analysis using the Entman model framing paradigm to see how online news media construct reality. This study focuses on the news of demonstrations against The Job Creation Act reported by Tirto.id and Liputan6.com for October 2020. The purpose of this research is to reveal how Tirto.id and Liputan6.com portrayed the demonstrations as the reflection of democracy in Indonesia. The results show that Tirto.id and Liputan6 have differentiation in interpreting this phenomenon. Tirto.id prioritizes a critical attitude to issues related to reflection of democracy in Indonesia in that context, that in the democratic process, there is still violence from the apparatus, annihilation of workers, and riots that cause damage to facilities and infrastructure. Meanwhile, Liputan6.com tends to develop a positive perspective regarding the democratic process during and after demonstrations. Despite violence against journalists, the authorities are still trying to resolve the case and emphasize the government's positive efforts in improving the country's economy through the Job Creation Law.
