Politics of Indonesia takes place in a framework of a presidential representative democratic republic, whereby the President of Indonesia is both head of state and head of government, and of a multi-party system as you can see in Indonesia political map. Executive power is exercised by the government. Legislative power is vested in both the government and the two People Representative Councils. The judiciary is independent of the executive and the legislature. The 1945 constitution provided for a limited separation of executive, legislative, and judicial power. The governmental system has been described as "presidential with parliamentary characteristics." Following the Indonesian riots of May 1998 and the resignation of President Suharto, several political reforms were set in motion via amendments to the Constitution of Indonesia, which resulted in changes to all branches of government.
The General Election Committee (Indonesian: Komisi Pemilihan Umum, KPU ) is the body responsible for running both parliamentary and presidential elections in Indonesia. Prior to the General Election of 2004, the KPU was made up of members who were also members of political parties, however members of the KPU must now be non-partisan as its shown in Indonesia political map. The Indonesian Supreme Court (Indonesian: Mahkamah Agung) is the highest level of the judicial branch. Its judges are appointed by the president. The Constitutional Court rules on constitutional and political matters (Indonesian: Mahkamah Konstitusi), while a Judicial Commission (Indonesian: Komisi Yudisial) oversees the judges.
A constitutional reform process lasted from 1999 to 2002, with four constitutional amendments producing important changes. Among these are term limits of up to two five-year terms for the President and Vice President, and measures to institute checks and balances as its mentioned in Indonesia political map. The highest state institution is the People Consultative Assembly (MPR), whose functions previously included electing the president and vice president (since 2004 the president has been elected directly by the people), establishing broad guidelines of state policy, and amending the constitution. The 695-member MPR includes all 550 members of the People Representative Council (DPR) (the House of Representatives) plus 130 "regional representatives" elected by the twenty-six provincial parliaments and sixty-five appointed members from societal groups.

The state (Indonesian: provinsi or propinsi) is the highest tier of local government subnational entity in Indonesia. Each state has its own local government, headed by a governor, and has its own legislative body. The governor and member of local representatives are elected by popular vote for five-year terms. With East Timor gaining its independence, Indonesia currently has 33 states, seven of which have been created since 1999 (North Maluku, West Papua, Banten, Bangka-Belitung Islands, Gorontalo, Riau Islands and West Sulawesi) and five states received special status as you can see in Indonesia states map: Aceh, for the use of the Sharia Law as the regional law of the state; Yogyakarta Special Region, for being governed in an ancient monarchy system; Papua, for implementation of sustainable development; West Papua, for granting implementation of sustainable development; and Jakarta Special Capital Region.
States are further divided into regencies (Indonesian: kabupaten) and cities. The states are officially grouped into seven geographical units. State (Indonesian: Provinsi) is headed by a governor. Each province has its own legislative body, called Dewan Perwakilan Rakyat Daerah (literally means "Regional People Representatives Assembly"). Governor and member of representatives are elected by popular vote for 5 years term. Among 33 provinces of Indonesia, 5 of them have special status as its shown in Indonesia states map: Nanggroe Aceh Darussalam (formerly: Aceh Special Region), has greater role in local government, such as has its own Islamic syari'ah law (only for Muslim citizen), flag and song of state, local political parties are allowed, and any decision or law made by central government which directly affect Aceh administration need to be consulted with the local government or legislative body.

West Papua (formerly: Irian Jaya Barat), has an equal status with Papua. Jakarta Special Capital Region, is the capital city of Indonesia, and place of all national government bodies.
