"This meeting is the second time for the Spectrum Politica Institute to become a discussion partner for diplomats at the Australian Embassy in West Sumatra," said Hairunnas.

The first meeting took place in mid-2019 with diplomat Amy Keough.

The topic of discussion by Assistant II for Political Affairs at the Australian Embassy with the Spectrum Politica Institute was about the development of political dynamics in West Sumatra, ranging from issues of democratization, women's representation, civil liberties, to West Sumatra's relations with national issues.

"Besides sharing about the results of the Spektrum Politica research and survey on the tendencies and preferences of West Sumatran voters ahead of the 2024 General Election," said Hairunnas, a researcher at the Spectrum Politica Institute who also serves as Deputy Secretary of the West Sumatra KNPI.
