Abstract

The current study surveyed multi-ethnic youth aspirations on credibility of political leadership with regards to the integrity in leadership, political concern, political idealism and political leadership styles. This study utilised a survey research design involving 800 Indonesian youth aged between 19 and 25, using a questionnaire that has been developed based on several past studies on youth and political leadership. Results revealed that there is a significant relationship between the elements of integrity, political concern and political idealism towards the inspired leadership style. This means that these three factors are interrelated and they are important factors for youth in selecting political leaders. Inferential statistics using Structural Equation Models (SEM) AMOS 18 found that political concern and idealism are mediators for determining political leadership styles. Surprisingly, the element of political concern and idealism are stronger that the element of integrity for political leadership inspired by youth. This informs the priorities for multi-ethnic youth in selecting the future political leaders are how political leaders exhibit their political concern and their political idealism. However, please bear in mind that the element of integrity is also significant and important for political leadership. The implications of this study are that political leadership must be aware of these factors as young people have specific characteristics for their future leaders.
