It also to prevent abuse of authority; (2) The principle of term limits of heads of regions in Indonesia within the framework of the democratic constitutional state in achieving good governance is that the position of head of the region is limited by time, the substance of the authority and the place or location. In order to run a good political education and consider the moral aspects, the head of region post should be clearly limited in term of its period.
