The Indonesian government has taken the initiative to reduce political turmoil in Myanmar, one of the ways that are outside the conventions that are usually carried out by Asean countries. Myanmar's military junta has killed hundreds of civilians and detained thousands of followers of Myanmar's democratic government. The activist group Association of Assistant Political Prisoners (AAPP) reported that as of Wednesday, April 7, at least 581 civilians who were demonstrating were killed by the Myanmar Military Junta. The purpose of this study is to find out and reveal why the Indonesian government dared to offer the initiative to stop political unrest in Myanmar and how it affected Indonesia. The informants of this research consisted of officials from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Indonesia, international political observers, and lecturers of international relations. The results of this study indicate that: a) The Indonesian government dares to take the initiative to stop political unrest in Myanmar because it ignores very fundamental principles and violates human rights. b) Indonesia is the largest Asean country that has great influence in the Asean environment and because of the close relationship between Indonesia and Myanmar. c) Indonesia's experience in holding simultaneous general elections without interference from civil society or the military. d) Indonesian leadership was born as a natural leader.

Keywords: Indonesia's Role, Military Coup, Myanmar Elections
