Notes for the presidential election

I have read two articles that are worth reading. First one is from the Wednesday edition of the printed Jakarta Post (June 24, 2009) titled "The Chinese Indonesian dilemma in electing president". The second article is the headline from the next day edition "Minorities doubtful of freedom of religion".

Both articles are talking about minorities. From the first article the author concluded "In numbers, they (Chinese Indonesians) are very insignificant and their votes are actually quite expendable. But in economics, international relations, and social affairs, they are indispensable". This conclusion raised another opinion published on Sunday, 28 June 2009.
