Erratum: “Indonesians want a more diverse legislature”

Readers who received the email notification of the new post “Indonesians want a more diverse legislature” should know that this piece was published under the wrong byline. The piece wasn’t authored be me, as the previous email from New Mandala would have you believe, but rather Eve Warburton, Edward Aspinall, Diego Fossati, Burhanuddin Muhtadi and Sally White. My apologies to readers and the authors for the error, which has been corrected on the New Mandala website.
