The history of Malaysia is no longer the same. After 60 years in power, Barisan Nasional, which is a 13-party coalition with UMNO as one of the strongest parties in Malaysia, has to relinquish its power to the opposition. In the general election held on Wednesday (May 9, 2018), Barisan Nasional had to compete  against Pakatan Harapan, which consists of 4 parties. As a result,  the people of Malaysia gave their  support to Pakatan Harapan which obtained  113 seats. With the addition of  the coalition of parties in Borneo, the total is 121 seats. While Barisan Nasional could only manage  79 seats. Former Prime Minister of Malaysia, Najib Tun Razak who led the Barisan Nasional admitted this defeat. However, in the matter of leadership, the problem is not yet fully completed. If calculated per party, no party controls an absolute majority without a coalition. The opposition parties incorporated in Pakatan Harapan, obviously will not share its power  with  Barisan Nasional. The defeat of Barisan Nasional can not be separated from the Malaysian people  lack of trust  to Najib Tun Razak figure, who is perceived not to run the mandate properly. Like in the case of  an  alleged  major corruption scandal that affects one of Malaysia's state-owned enterprises, 1 MDB. Reportedly Najib Razak received huge amounts of money from it, although this was denied by him. However, Mahathir Mohammad, who was once the Prime Minister of Malaysia and now the  coalition leader, did not automatically  become Prime Minister after the Election. After the vote count, Malaysia is still not fully out of the leadership crisis, since  no party has  absolute majority.  Razak submitted the matter to Yang Ditertuan Agung, Sultan Muhamad V, as the Head of State of Malaysia. Finally, Mahatir Mohammad took the oath as the 7th Prime Minister of Malaysia, at the State Palace at around 10 pm on Thursday. Although  there were  rumors that  the Palace was less pleased with Mahatir because he often criticized the kingdom. Earlier coalition leaders met Yang Dipertuan Agung to ensure that  Mahatir can  be sworn in to lead Malaysia. The voice of Malaysians who give trust to the Pakatan Hope Coalition to lead the country should be supported. Leadership of Malaysia under the 92-year-old Mahatir Mohammad, in this period, should be able to bring positive hope to Malaysia. Because any political crisis that hit the country, will certainly affect the regional conditions in the ASEAN region and Indonesia.

Vladimir Putin officially returned to the Russian presidency after winning the March 18 election. Putin took  his oath  Monday, May 7, 2018 in an event attended by at least 5,000 people  in the Kremlin. Entering his fourth term, Vladirmir Putin reiterated his commitment to answer the country's survey results that show that there is  still a  wide gap  between the  rich and the poor in  the country. His opponents, who held a demonstration against him during his last presidency said that Vladimir Putin ruled Russia as the Tsars or kings in the past. In contrast, supporters, in addition to praising his success in leading Russia, also believe that Vladimir Putin, now 65, will be able to increase Russia's role in the international arena. His victory in recent elections has made Vladimir Putin hold the post of Russian President for the fourth time. Despite a one-time absence, Vladimir Putin has been in Russia’s top position  for the last 18 years. Putin served as Russia's President first in 2000 and was elected for the second time in 2004.Because the law prohibits a president from serving more than two consecutive terms, in 2008 Putin resigned. He then became prime minister under President Dmitry Medvedev. After serving as Prime Minister, Putin ran again for President, and was elected in the 2012 elections. He  was in office  until 2018 when  he was re-elected with 76 percent votes in elections. For Putin’s  success in becoming the president for the fourth time, US President Donald Trump, reportedly has congratulated him. Despite his  winning 76 percent of the votes, some Russian people showed opposition to Putin by demonstrating at least in 19 cities. Police have arrested at least 1000 protesters ahead of the  inauguration. Whether the hopes and optimism of most Russian citizens will be realized, or the concerns of those  who oppose him  will  become a reality, only  time will show.

The Asian Games 2018 is going to take place in Jakarta and Palembang for a few months to come. But seemingly, President Joko Widodo has not been satisfied with the promotion of this international event that has not been carried out at maximum. In a limited meeting at Bogor Presidential Palace in West Java on April 18 and at Presidential Office in Jakarta on 4 May, President Joko Widodo reminded that the 18th Asian Games does not become a fever amidst the Indonesian community. The President asks the echo of the Asian Games to resound throughout Indonesia. Indeed, the Asian Games is an event with the national and international scale; it does not belong to the host cities: Jakarta and Palembang.

In response to the President's criticism of the promotion of the Asian Games, Chairman of the Organizing Committee of Asian Games Indonesia –Inasgoc, Erick Thohir said that the role of state institutions is very important in promoting the Asian Games. On the sidelines of the 2018 Asian Games entitled "BRI Sunday Fest" in Jakarta on last Sunday (6/5), Erick expressed his hope that state institutions such as TVRI and RRI must play a major role in promoting the Asian Games. In addition, the Indonesian National Police -Polri must guarantee the security during the event. He views that both state media have wide network throughout Indonesia and the Polri also have professional personnel to safeguard the 18th Asian Games.

To promote the Asian Games 2018 which will take place on August 18 to September 2 is the common responsibility of all state institutions, including the Indonesian Armed Forces –TNI, Polri and the general public. Both TNI and Polri have the main task to maintain security in the implementation of the Asian Games. The Ministry of Youth and Sports and Inasgoc must take advantage of many channels in addition to expecting state agencies to promote in short time ahead. Schools, social media and private institutions should also cooperate to further intensify the promotion of the 2018 Asian Games.

The ancestors of Indonesia were excellent sailors. Not surprisingly, Indonesia is the largest archipelagic country with the second longest coastline in the world. It is a maritime country or a country surrounded by oceans. Approximately, two-third (2/3) of Indonesia's territory is sea. With such a large and wide coverage, of course Indonesia's sea deposits biodiversity of marine natural resources both biological and non-biological resources with high value. In addition, the Indonesian sea also has much potential that can be utilized. Take for example; there are marine tourism and renewable and non-renewable sources, such as oil and gas, rare minerals and the sea can also be used as an inter-island transportation that is very economical. Historically, Indonesian nation is characterized by maritime history that starts from the western region to the central and eastern archipelago. Long before independence, Indonesia was already known to the world as a nation that has advanced in maritime civilization. The history records that Indonesian seafarers have sailed away by the outrigger ships. By using a simple navigational tool, they were able to sail north, then west to cut the Indian Ocean up to Madagascar and continue east to Easter Island. But the maritime spirit became faded when Indonesia experienced colonization by the Dutch colonial government. Lifestyle and orientation of the nation were "changed" from maritime to agrarian orientation. To revive Indonesia's maritime culture, Indonesian National Navy -TNI AL from 4 to 9 May 2018 held ‘Multilateral Naval Exercise Komodo’ -MNEK 2018 in Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara -NTB. This multilateral exercise has been held for the third time, and it was followed by 36 Navies from different parts of the world. The navy exercise featured 15 sophisticated warships from the participating countries along with Indonesia’s 36 Naval Warships, 11 transports and combat aircraft. This exercise was also followed by more than 5,500 troops. As a country with large sea territory, Indonesia should also have a powerful navy with capable and strong personnel and its main weapon system equipment -Alutsista is sophisticated. This multilateral naval exercise is expected to improve the strength of Indonesian Navy. In addition, it is also expected to revive Indonesia's maritime culture y showing to the world that Indonesia was once a maritime country to be reckoned.

Last Sunday (29/4), Japanese Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe started his trip to the Middle East by visiting the United Arab Emirates -UAE. After meeting the officials of the UAE, including the crown prince of Abu Dhabi, PM Shinzo Abe continued his goodwill visit  to Jordan on Monday (30 April). In addition to visiting  the two countries, PM Zhinso Abe's mission was to meet Israeli Prime Minister, Netanyahu, and Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas. PM Abe said that his Middle East mission's priority this time is for peace. For Japan, the Middle East region is very important to maintain the continuity of energy supply to Japan. The trips  to the Middle East had been done several times by  PM Zhinso Abe. It should be noted that this was  the  first visit of  a major state’s leader  to Palestine and Israel, after the United States recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital. To Prime Minister Netanyahu, Prime Minister Abe expressed his interest to increase Japanese investment in Israel. In addition, the two countries agreed to open a Japan-Israel direct flight. PM Netanyahu welcomed Japan's plan to increase Japanese investment in Israel. Before meeting PM Netanyahu, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe met Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah, West Bank. If in the  meeting with PM Netanyahu, he discussed the improvement of economic ties. With President Abbas, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe emphasized Japan's plan to keep the current Japanese Embassy Office in Tel Aviv, and not to transfer it to Jerusalem. To President Mahmoud Abbas, Prime Minister Abe expressed Tokyo's support for Palestinian independence within the two-country framework. For PM Abe, the dispute over the status of Jerusalem must be resolved by dialogue between Israel and Palestine. Prime Minister Abe's visit is considered positive in a bid to achieve peace in the Middle East region. Indeed, this region is still turbulent compared to the decline in tension in the Korean Peninsula. Indonesia supports every step taken to bring peace in the Middle East. More specifically, the two-state solution presented by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is  similar to what Indonesia has been proposing.

Bogor, once again became a city that marked the beginning of important dialogue among nations. Unlike the dialogue between the disputing parties in Cambodia some time ago, it was not the opposite sides that met in Bogor, but those who wanted a relationship that brought peace among Muslims in the world. Scholars from various countries gathered in Bogor yesterday to discuss steps to realize the concepts of Islam that brings peace. The meeting was opened by President Joko Widodo at Bogor Palace on May 1, titled 'HIGH LEVEL CONSULTATION OF WORLD MUSLIM SCHOLARS ON WASATIYYAT ISLAM'.The meeting was scheduled to last for three days. The attending scholars are from 29 countries including those from the Organization of Islamic Conferences (OIC), France, the United States, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, Russia and Iran. Also present at the conference that runs until tomorrow, are clerics from Syria, a war-torn country, partly devastated by bombs.Indeed, Indonesia’s initiative to hold the Wasatiyah (moderate) Islamic meeting is quite appropriate. There are at least two reasons for that. The first, because Indonesia as a country with the most Muslim population in the  world, has long been known as a relatively peaceful country. This because the majority of Muslims here are always trying to manifest themselves moderately and willing to overcome problems. Secondly, because the role of Indonesian Muslims, in dealing with conflicts in the world, has been proven to be necessary.President Joko Widodo in the opening remarks of the Conference, stated that Indonesia is a country that maintains diversity. Indonesia will continue to foster peace and unity, by prioritizing deliberation, tolerance, and trust, that bring social justice and lasting peace. Muslims must lead and pioneer efforts to create peace as well as the motor of world progress.Hopefully, the conference in Bogor will be able to formulate the position of ulema or scholars and Muslims in general, as middle people who are able to bring peace and solve problems. From Bogor a new hope has emerged on the concrete birth of the Wasatiyah (moderate) Islam. It's about not only on the concept level, but also how to implement it. Of course, this is with Aqidah (creed) based on Al Qur'an and Hadith.

Bogor, again became a city that marked the beginning of important dialogue between nations. If there had been a dialogue between the disputing parties in Cambodia, it was not the opposite party that met in Bogor but the parties who wanted a relationship that brought peace among the Muslims. Various scholars from various countries gathered since yesterday in Bogor to discuss steps to realize the concepts of Islam that reconcile. The meeting was opened by President Joko Widodo at Bogor Palace on May 1, titled HIGH LEVEL CONSULTATION OF WORLD MUSLIM SCHOLARS ON WASATIYYAT ISLAM.

The high-level consultation meeting of the world's Muslim scholars on Istiyyah Islam will last for three days. The present scholars are from the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Lebanon, Syria, Algeria, Singapore, Philippines, India, Bangladesh, China, Australia, France and Canada. As well as from the United States, Brunei Darussalam, Japan, Thailand, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Uzbekistan, Britain and Russia. Then from Iran, Timor Leste, Sri Lanka, Palestine, Italy, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Jordan. Also present at a conference that runs until tomorrow are clerics from Syria, a war-torn country and cause some of its country to be devastated by bombs.


Indeed, Indonesia initiated the Wasatiyah Islamic meeting. There are at least two things to say. The first is because Indonesia has been in peace since the majority of Muslims are always trying to manifest themselves moderately and appear to overcome problems. Secondly, because the role of Indonesian Muslims in dealing with conflicts in the world is very necessary.


President Joko Widodo in the opening remarks of the Conference stated that Indonesia is a country that maintains diversity. Indonesia will continue to foster peace and unity by prioritizing deliberation, tolerance, and trust that brings social justice and lasting peace. Muslims must lead and pioneer efforts to create peace as well as the motor of world progress.


We hope, the conference in Bogor will be able to formulate the position of ulema and Muslims as middle people who are able to become a middle and middle problem. From Bogor new hope emerged about the concrete birth of Islam Wasatiyah not only from the level of concept but also how to do it, off course with aqidah based on Al Qur'an and Hadith.
