Under the 1945 constitution the president is both chief executive and head of state. The president is elected to a five-year term by the People’s Consultative Assembly (Majelis Permusyawaratan Rakyat, or MPR), the country’s highest state authority. The constitution grants the president wide powers, including the power to rule by decree in emergencies, and imposes no limit on the number of terms a president may serve. The president is responsible for appointing a cabinet to carry out the administrative duties of the government. Cabinet ministers are typically chosen from the military or the ministries.
