Using intelligence for election




Book review “Intelijen and Pilkada” written by Stepi Anriani – Jubi / Arjuna


Jayapura, Jubi – It began from her curiosity about why her fellow activists who are considered smart, experienced and have broadened networks are reluctant to enter politics; Stepi Anriani wrote a book entitled ‘Intelijen dan Pilkada (Pendekatan Strategis Menghadapi Pemilu)’ – Intelligence and Election (Strategic Approaches to Election).

“The reason is simple, they do not have money, while for being elected as candidates of the legislatures, regents, mayors or governors need billions of rupiah,” she said in her book review conducted in Entrop, Jayapura City on Wednesday (16/5/ 2018).

The 225-page book discusses what the intelligence is and how one can use it to win regional and national elections without spending much money, because being aware or not, everyone has conducted intelligence activities in their everyday life to obtain accurate information to be verified and justified.

In the book, she categorises the intelligence into seven definitions, namely as information, knowledge, product, activity, process, organisation and profession. “The stronger a person’s intelligence is, the less money he spends.”

She also wrote how making the intelligence approach and winning an election without cheating. There are six main points can be applied: do not recruit wrong campaign team, strong character, strategy, counter-propaganda, gaining supporters and facing the opponent.

Attended the book review, Papua Police Chief Inspector General Boy Rafli Amar, Papua Military Commander Major General George Elnadus Supit and Chairman of Papua Election Commission Adam e Arisoi became keynote speakers, while students, academics, community leaders and journalists joined the event.

“Intelligence is not just a domain of state apparatus, but anyone who wants to succeed in any field must able to understand to use it, including in politics,” said Boy Rafli. According to him, the National Police and Military use the intelligence to map vulnerable areas, especially potential social conflict areas.

In the same place, Major General George Elnadus Supit said intelligence and politics are like two inseparable coins. It is impossible to take power without money, but it depends on how the person manages his ‘intelligence’.

Meanwhile, Arisoi rates the book as very interesting because it tells the connection between intelligence and regional election.

The author of the book, Stepi Anriani was a graduate from the Public Administration of the Faculty of Social and Political Sciences of the University of Padjadjaran. She pursued her master study on Intelligence Strategic Studies at the University of Indonesia. She worked as an expert in the Indonesian House of Representatives and resource person in several government agencies. Currently, she pursues her doctoral study on Policy at the University of Indonesia and teaches in several places. She dedicates her book to her companions (Indonesian citizens). (*)
