The U.S. mid-term elections on November 4 will change the political makeup of the U.S. Congress.  All 435 seats of the House of Representatives and one-third of the 100 Senate seats will be contested.

The mid-term will determine which party will control the House and the Senate. Election forecasters predict the Republicans are likely to retain control of the House and regain control of the Senate as well.

What is at stake in the midterm elections? What are the key Congressional races to watch?  What are the chances of the Republican Party to win back the Senate?   What might be the implications of control of both Houses of Congress by a party other than the President’s for U.S. foreign policy, and generally for President Obama’s last two years in office?

Please join USINDO and the Centre for Strategic and International Studies Jakarta on September 25 this Special Open Forum, which will give us a deeper understanding of the U.S. midterm elections, and their implications for U.S. foreign policy.
