The study examines the polemic of the political revitalization of the GBHN law as a state policy and the position of the Long-Term Development Plan (RPJPN) as a substitute for GBHN in the second term of Jokowi’s Presidency. By applying normative research methods and qualitative descriptive analysis, the results show that the GBHN restoration effort is the right step as the primary guideline for national development. The RPJPN better reflects the crystallization of the political vision of the President during his five years office, so that it is not appropriate as a state policy. GBHN is a political vision of the Indonesian people, and it can be applied as a substitute for a change in government regime. The strength of GBHN's constitutional legitimacy is far superior because it is made by the people's representative institution (MPR), and governing the RPJPN which is solely made by the President. The position of RJPN was mutually agreed upon as a translation of the principle of the state policies in the GBHN. In the context of the GBHN restoration, Pancasila remains as an ideological foundation, while the 1945 Constitution remains as a constitutional foundation.
