  • Description

    INDONESIA CELEBRATED THE ANNIVERSARY OF PANTJASILA -- THE FIVE PRINCIPLES OF THE INDONESIAN SECULAR REPUBLIC FORMULATED BY FORMER PRESIDENT SUKARNO 22 YEARS AGO -- WITH A CEREMONY AT THE STATE PALACE IN DJAKARTA ON THURSDAY. BUT MEANWHILE, MANY INDONESIAN PARLIAMENTARIANS WERE CRITICAL OF ACTING PRESIDENT SUHARTO FOR ALLOWING SUKARNO TO OCCUPY THE SUMMER PALACE AT BOGOR, 40 MILES FROM THE CAPITAL.

    PANTJASILA EMBODIES THE FIVE PRINCIPLES OF THE INDONESIAN CONSTITUTION -- BELIEF IN GOD, NATIONALISM, HUMANISM, SOVEREIGNTY OF THE PEOPLE AND SOCIAL JUSTICE. IT WAS PUT FORWARD BY FORMER PRESIDENT SUKARNO WHEN INDONESIA WAS FORMULATED 22 YEARS AGO, BUT ON THURSDAY, GENERAL HARIS ABDUL NASUTION, CHAIRMAN OF INDONESIA'S POLICY-MAKING PEOPLE CONSULTATIVE CONGRESS ISSUED A STATEMENT SAYING THAT SUKARNO WAS NOT THE SOLE DISCOVERER OF PANTJASILA. IT WAS, HE SAID, EVOLVED BY SCHOLARS.

    A THE CEREMONY IN DJAKARTA, INDONESIAN POLITICIANS AND DIPLOMATS GATHERED TO MARK THE ANNIVERSARY, WHILE SUKARNO REMAINED IN THE SUMMER PALACE, WHERE HE HAD REMAINED SINCE HIS REMOVAL FROM POWER IN MARCH.

    SOME INDONESIAN POLITICIANS HAVE CALLED ON THE GOVERNMENT TO MAKE SURE THAT SUKARNO MAKES NO ATTEMPT TO RESUME POWER. THEY SAY THAT THE EX-PRESIDENT STILL WEARS HIS PRESIDENTIAL UNIFORM AND HOLDS POLITICAL BRIEFINGS EVERY WEEK.
