An Australian-based international gold mining company caused concern in Indonesia’s 2014 political year as the country wrapped up legislative elections and prepared to hold its presidential election. With elections fast approaching, the company realized that its stature could be dramatically affected by new political configurations, policy trends, and distribution of power in the wake of a new president, cabinet, and supporting political parties in the House of Representatives.
Kiroyan Partners conducted a political mapping study to identify stakeholder significance and roles in the post-election political climate. Our team also mapped each person and institution that could potentially have decision-making power in the new government, particularly with regards to the mining sector.
The company gained an in-depth insight on the post-election climate, and formed a concrete plan for targeting specific stakeholders in order to maintain sustainability.
