As a country with a diversity of languages, religions, ethnicities and cultures,‎ Indonesia is particularly vulnerable to the hostile play of identity politics. Lies‎ produced during the Post-Truth period exploit many emotional sentiments and‎ provoke interest groups to act based on primordial impulses that support certain‎ political interests. The negative turbulence related to identity politics due‎ to the chaotic circulation of hoaxes and misinformation is feared to lead to‎ a Post-Democratic situation. Taking the case study of the two most influential‎ elections in Indonesia: the 2017 Jakarta provincial election and the 2019‎ presidential election, this paper will explore how the Post-Truth phenomenon‎ incorporates the issue of identity politics to generate a Post-Democratic situation‎ in Indonesia. Secondary data analysis from the news and social media‎ will be employed to further explain how identity politics is distorted in the‎ media, and how it can generate social and political turbulence.‎
