As we already know, Indonesia, a diverse archipelago, has become an example of democratic success in Southeast Asia. 

General elections (Pemilu) become the main stage for Indonesian citizens to determine their future and elect leaders to bring change directly. 

In the coming months, precisely in 2024, Indonesia will again enter a new chapter in this democratic journey. However, behind the excitement and soaring expectations, we must face the possibility of unexpected social turmoil and unrest.

Indonesia’s 2024 elections will be a tense and intense political event. In this process, tensions, disagreements, and interparty rivalries create a tense atmosphere. 

Unfortunately, motor vehicles often become victims of violence and undue damage in such situations.

Imagine that you are driving to work with excitement. Suddenly, a campaigning crowd split into two opposing camps, sparking widespread tensions. 

Conflict ensues, and in the chaos, your vehicle is affected. Broken glass, scratches, or even more severe damage can happen instantly, leaving you with an unexpected financial burden.

In the face of a dynamic 2024 election, we must protect our own motor vehicles with the right insurance. 

Vehicle insurance that covers the risk of riots and social unrest can be a strong shield in the face of possible losses incurred during the election process. 

In this article, we will explore how important it is to have vehicle insurance that can protect us from social risks that may occur during the 2024 Elections, as well as how this protection can provide peace of mind when unexpected events occur.

Let’s prepare ourselves well for this challenging 2024 Indonesian election. 



Here are some examples of riots or social unrest that have occurred in Indonesia:

  • 1998 riots

In 1998, there were a series of riots and riots in various cities in Indonesia. These riots were triggered by political and economic tensions related to the fall of the New Order regime. Many buildings and vehicles were damaged because of this riot.

  • Poso riots

The conflict between religious groups in Poso, Central Sulawesi, in 1998-2001 resulted in severe riots and bloodshed. Many buildings and vehicles were destroyed during this period.

  • Ambon-Maluku riots

Conflicts between religious groups in Ambon and other Maluku regions in 1999-2002 resulted in riots involving arson, looting, and damage to infrastructure, including vehicles.

  • Sambas riots

In 1999, there was a riot between Dayak and Madurese tribes in Sambas, West Kalimantan. These riots resulted in major damage, including arson and looting of homes and vehicles.

Papuan riots

Several riots and conflicts have occurred in Papua Province in recent years, with several violent incidents involving the destruction of vehicles and infrastructure.

Please note that the above list is only a part of the riots and riots in Indonesia. Many other incidents have also affected security and property damage, including vehicles, during social and political tension periods.



The following are some examples of RSMD (Riot, Strike, Malicious Damage) risks that may occur in motor vehicles due to general elections (elections) in Indonesia:

  • Damage from mass riots

During election periods, there are sometimes mass riots that can cause damage to motor vehicles. For example, vehicles may be subjected to stone, broken glass, or other objects that can damage the vehicle’s body or its components.

  • Vehicle theft

In situations of uncontrolled unrest, the risk of vehicle theft may increase. Uncontrolled mobs or individuals taking advantage of the chaos can steal vehicles parked around the affected area.

  • Fire damage

In a riot or crowd situation, the vehicle may catch fire due to deliberate action or a widespread fire. This could result in significant damage to the car.

  • Acts of vandalism

During elections, vehicles can be subjected to vandalism in social unrest, such as paint graffiti, cable cutting, or damage to other vehicle components.

  • Damage from explosion or destruction

In extreme situations, social unrest can lead to using explosives or other destructive acts that can cause severe damage to vehicles.



Insurance companies in Indonesia generally offer the Indonesian Motor Vehicle Insurance Standard Policy (PSAKBI) to protect motor vehicles. This policy has several standard guarantees that generally include the following:

  • Third-Party Liability

This policy protects against the vehicle owner’s legal liability to third parties in the event of a traffic accident that causes physical injury or death, as well as damage to the property of third parties.

  • Personal Accident Insurance for Vehicle Owners

If the vehicle’s owner has an accident that results in injury or death, this policy protects medical expenses and compensation stipulated in the policy.

  • Vehicle Loss Guarantee

This policy also protects the owner’s vehicle from the risk of loss or damage caused by accident, collision, fire, theft, or malicious acts by third parties.

  • Flood Insurance

Some PSAKBI policies also cover protection against vehicle damage due to flooding.

  • Driver and Passenger Insurance Coverage

Some policies also provide coverage against injury or death of drivers and passengers in vehicles.

However, it is essential to note that the extent of coverage can vary between insurance companies. Therefore, always read carefully the terms and conditions of the policy offered by the insurance company to thoroughly understand what is covered and what is not covered under the policy.

In addition to the standard guarantees above, insurance companies can offer additional optional guarantees that you can consider according to your needs and preferences. For example, protection against damage from social unrest, political risk, or other legal protection.

Be sure to consult an insurance broker as a consultant for more detailed information about the guarantees offered in their Standard Indonesian Motor Vehicle Insurance Policy.



Yes, the PSAKBI policy covers the risk of riots and riots, but it should be noted that risks due to riots, strikes, and riots do not apply automatically.

Such risks can be guaranteed by adding additional collateral called “Risk of Strike, Riot, and Civil Commotion” (SRCC). 

This insurance protects motor vehicles from damage or loss caused by social turmoil, including riots, riots, and strikes.

So, you must request the insurance company that you want to include SRCC coverage in your policy.



To ensure that the risk of riots and strikes due to elections is covered under the PSAKBI insurance policy, you need to take the following steps:

  • Review Terms and Conditions

Read carefully the PSAKBI insurance policy terms and conditions offered by your chosen insurance company. Look for sections related to “Special Risk” or “Risk of Strike, Riot, and Civil Commotion” (SRCC). Note whether the guarantee against riots and strikes is included by default or whether it needs to be added as additional collateral with additional premium payments.

  • Discuss with Your Insurance Broker

Convey your desire to your insurance brokerage company to include coverage against the risk of riots and strikes due to elections in your PSAKBI insurance policy. Ask questions and clarify whether the warranty is available, the coverage is, and whether you need to know any specific requirements or limitations.

  • Check Additional Policies

In addition to the SRCC guarantee in the PSAKBI insurance policy, insurance companies may offer additional policies that specifically protect vehicles from political risks or social unrest associated with elections. Ask for information about these additional policies and evaluate whether they fit your needs.

  • Get a Written Explanation

Ensure that all agreements, guarantees, and policy changes discussed with the insurance company are recorded in writing. This will provide clarity and certainty about what is covered by the PSAKBI insurance policy you choose.

  • Insurance Broker 

You need to use the services of an experienced and trusted insurance broker to help you choose an insurance policy that suits your needs and ensure that the risk of riots and strikes is covered.
