Studies on corruption coverage by newspapers in Nigeria during the Buhari administration focused on broad corruption issues, his first tenure, and almost zero studies on anti-corruption during his ongoing second tenure to lapse in 2023. This study aims to examine anti-corruption reporting by two Nigerian newspapers, Daily Trust and The Nation, within the first and second tenures of the Buhari administration. The study content-analyzed 475 editorial contents covering the first year in each of the first and second tenures (2015/2016 and 2019/2020). Findings revealed that The Nation reported more stories on anti-corruption than the Daily Trust in both the first and second tenures. However, both newspapers recorded a significant drop in corruption coverage in the second tenure. News stories took the lead in the first and second tenures, with 72.4% and 84.4%, respectively. The study found that both newspapers published more front and back page contents in the first tenure than in the second tenure, but published less front and back page reports on corruption compared to reports on the inside pages during the period of study. The newspapers also published more stories, measuring more than 100 lines during the second tenure than the first. In contrast, more uncritical reports of anti-corruption were published in the first tenure than in the second by the two. The study concluded that poor investigative journalism drive, among other factors, was responsible for the decline in corruption reports, especially during the 2019/2020 period. It recommends that newspapers strive not to allow ethno-religious interests to influence editorial responses on corruption and increase their investigative journalism drive to win the corruption war in the country.

The Presidential, Vice Presidential, and Legislative General Elections were held simultaneously for the first time in 2019 as a constitutional implication of the Constitutional Court Decision Number 14/PUU-XI/2013 and the enactment of Law Number 7 of 2017 concerning General Sorting. This study aims to identify the extent of the effectiveness of The General Election Supervisory Agency in the first simultaneous implementation as an effort to face the simultaneous general election in 2024 so that it can run optimally and minimize the occurrence of errors in the general election organizing sector. The method used in this study focuses on collecting data so that this research design is descriptive qualitative. In practice, there are still many problems that occur in the organizers of the General Election. Election organizers established by law are the General Election Commissions, The General Election Supervisory Agency and the Election Organizer Ethics Council In the context of the effectiveness of the General Election Supervisory Agency. In general, the General Election Supervisory Agency has carried out its duties to the fullest, still leaving a record that it is not yet effective. The General Election Commissions as technical organizers in the General Election noted very crucial problems such as human resources that were not directly proportional to the workload carried out, causing many to get sick and even die, besides that the Permanent Voters List is still a crucial problem in the 2019 simultaneous general election, asynchronous Permanent Voters List so that millions of people cannot cast their ballots. Various administrative sectors that also experienced many problems are still being evaluated. The General Election Supervisory Agency is experiencing problems with violations and crimes that occur in the implementation of general elections are also not maximized. The Election Organizer Ethics Council which is authorized to follow up on ethical code issues tends to be considered successful, although it still leaves a record for improvement. Facing the simultaneous general election in 2024, then a comprehensive evaluation of these problems will be treated.

The quality of life of a country or region describes the welfare of the people and the success of programs made by the government to improve the degree of human life. Life expectancy is one of the indicators used to assess the population's health status that describes the quality of life. In contrast, education is the basis for poverty alleviation and economic growth. Education and health are fundamental to building wider human capacities and are at the core of the meaning of development. This research was conducted to test the effect of poverty and education on public health in the city of Palembang. Secondary data sourced from the Central Statistics Agency in 2010-2019 were analyzed using multiple regression with Eviews 9 analysis software. The dependent variable is Life Expectancy as a proxy for public health rates. The independent variable is the average length of schooling as a proxy indicator of education and the number of poor people. This study shows that poverty is negatively correlated with public health. In contrast, the direction of education is negative, so it can be concluded that education has no significant effect on public health Poverty and education are factors that determine the level of public health in the city of Palembang, where the higher the education and the decrease in poverty, the higher the public health. In order to approach better public health status in Palembang City, poverty is reduced by reducing unemployment and increasing education through skills training.

The objective of this study was to corroborate the dimensions of ecocentric governance: conflict between authorities and users, negotiation and agreement between the parties, and co-responsible self-regulation between the rulers and the ruled regarding energy and water resources and services. An exploratory, cross-sectional and psychometric study was carried out with a non-probabilistic selection of 100 officials and electricity and water service users. This study used the governance inventory, and the three preponderant factors were obtained: conflict, negotiation-consensus, and self-regulation-co-responsibility. The three factors refer to governance oriented towards resource conservation concerning the literature consulted. The third factor of self-regulation and co-responsibility suggests policies oriented toward the availability of energy and water resources. Empirical testing of the model in a scenario and a sample exposed to resource scarcity is recommended.

This study intends to examine how the development of research related to the merit system in Indonesia and international practices. Bibliometric analysis is used to determine the dynamics of the research topics discussed related to the merit system through keywords that appear in the Scopus database until January 7, 2022. Visualization from bibliometric based on co-authorship, co-occurrence, and citation using VOSviewer 1.6.16. This study showed 485 articles had been filtered through the criteria of Open Access, Article, English, and Journal. Six of the 485 articles discussed various aspects of the merit system in Indonesia. In Co-authorship, there are eight of 23 clusters written by more than two people collaborating; the United Kingdom is the highest number of articles published, while Indonesia also appears in the visualization but does not collaborate with affiliated authors from other countries. In co-occurrence, 22 clusters of 1,503 keywords emerge, and 234 meet the threshold. The meritocracy item has the highest link and total link strength, but this item was published on average around the year 2018. In terms of citation, eight of the ten most-cited documents were published more than the last ten years, while the other two documents were published in the last eight years. The document of Pratto f. 1994 was the highest citation document and became an important article related to the merit system discussing social dominance orientation which looks at inequality in social groups.

The Indonesian government conducted bureaucratic reforms to create excellent and clean governance. The reforms need government institutions to utilize the wealth of knowledge they have. However, knowledge is still scattered among institutions employees and not well documented. Thus, it is critical to apply knowledge management, especially to share the knowledge. This study aims to determine the antecedents that influence knowledge-sharing behavior among Indonesian civil servants (Aparatur Sipil Negara, ASN), especially in the finance ministry, which is the scope of this research. This research analyzes the effect of job autonomy on knowledge-sharing behavior. This study also examines the mediating role of public service motivation and intrinsic motivation. We spread the questionnaire across seven echelons III working units in the headquarters of the finance ministry. The researchers limited respondents to work periods of more than one year and collected 252 valid responses. The researchers captured respondents' perceptions of the overall research variables and processed the data using structural equation modeling with AMOS software. The results showed that job autonomy positively affects public service motivation and intrinsic motivation. However, there is not enough evidence to conclude that there is significant knowledge-sharing behavior between ASN evaluated here unless there is a need to provide public service. This finding indicates that Indonesian ASN would not share their knowledge voluntarily. We also found no difference in the behavior between millennial ASN and their senior counterparts. We suggest that the administration design a working procedure with enough autonomy to push the ASN to share their knowledge.

Decentralization has several positive impacts on Indonesian local government performance. To date, many studies have unpacked the positive implications of Indonesian decentralization. Yet, few have shown a structural argument of the decentralization reform trajectory in Indonesia constitutional reform 1998-2002. This study investigates the dynamic processes of parliament voting within the constitution amendment on the decentralization article as a source of the existing Indonesian decentralization performance. Analyzing research questions will conduct; to what extent do political networks shape the content of the decentralization article in the constitution amendment in 1999-2000; how much pressures out of parliament session affect the political networks within Indonesian constitution amendment the decentralization article. This study applies a theory that social networks and personal relations sourced from party alignment can explain the outcome variations of decisions at the political arenas. The quantitative method is used to construct independent variables of political networks in testing to what extent informal political networks influence the voting of members of parliament within 32 meetings in 1999 and 2000. In presenting statistical, empirical findings, this study points out that the constitutional amendment, which ‘produces’ new decentralization article, is a direct result of bargaining between members of parliament, which builds informal political networks. So, this provision creates an improved performance of Indonesian decentralization today. Due to the statistical, empirical findings talking to wider themes of parliament and decentralization, this study suggests paying more attention to the indicators of political networks on and off parliament’s formal meetings within the constitution amendment.

This study identifies the relationship of the Special Autonomy Fund (DOK) to Road Infrastructure by looking at variations in the Construction Cost Index as a proxy that describes the geographical conditions in Papua. Infrastructure development is a sector that is expected to accelerate the provision of basic infrastructure to reduce the development gap. However, the success of infrastructure development in Papua is inseparable from geographical factors. By using data from 29 regencies/cities in Papua Province and 11 regencies/cities in West Papua Province from 2010 to 2020, to determine the correlation of the Special Autonomy Fund on Road Infrastructure, the fixed effect panel data method and the moderating regression model were used to see if the moderating variable Construction Cost Index can strengthen or weaken the relationship of the Special Autonomy Fund to Road Infrastructure. This study found a positive relationship between the Special Autonomy Fund on Road Infrastructure and identified a negative moderating of the Construction Cost Index variable on the relationship of the Special Autonomy Fund to Road Infrastructure. This shows that the higher the Construction Cost Index, the higher the price of construction materials, increasing the total cost of road infrastructure development. As a result, the Special Autonomy Fund allocated is only able to buy fewer road construction materials, which has an impact on the reduced quantity of road infrastructure built in the provinces of Papua and West Papua.

Light Rail Transit (LRT), integrated with river transportation as a unique city and tourist attraction, is important in supporting smart cities. This study aims to assess the possibilities of river transportation users who use LRT as an advanced mode and its supporting infrastructure. This research is quantitative research with a descriptive approach. Primary data is obtained from a survey of the movement of river transportation users from outside the city to Palembang City and has the potential to continue their journey using the LRT. Interviews were also conducted with respondents covering the respondents' travel destination, travel destination, and reasons. The study results indicate that the use of river transportation from within the city, which gets off at the pier and does not continue the journey as much as 75%, and the rest will continue the journey using the LRT mode only 16%. Meanwhile, 29.5% of river transport users from outside the city disembark at the pier. The remaining 53% continue their journey with the potential to use LRT, which is a reasonably high percentage if it can be appropriately managed. The availability of a variety of public transportation that can park near the pier at a cheaper rate is the main cause of their lack of interest in using the LRT mode. The proposed supporting infrastructure for integration between river transport and LRT is the pedestrian path.
