“Dwifungsi (“dual function”) was a doctrine implemented by Suharto’s military-dominated “New Order” government in Indonesia following the removal of President Sukarna. Dwifungsi was used to justify the military permanently increasing its influence in the Indonesian government, including reserved military-only seats in the parliament, and top positions in the nation’s public service.”
