The purpose of this study was to illustrate the comparison of the political systems of Indonesia and Singapore. The research method in this paper is a literature study sourced from a collection of books, national and international journals, relevant government pages, and actual news on an official government media pages described descriptively. The results show that Singapore's political system tends to be better than Indonesia because it has clear rules on the source and transparency of the use of political party funds. Through the review of a number of journals, it is expected that Indonesia can implement the Singapore government's policy of regulating political party funds so as to prevent corruption of political party funds.
