It can be seen from a variety of irregularities committed by the government, not only in the New Order government, but also in nowadays, the corruption is still deeply entrenched in the bureaucracy. Poverty and ignorance is another factor that triggers the development of civil society to be container aspirations of the people for the sake of their interests which include health, education, economic, cultural and political rights.
