TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Constitutional law expert Bivitri Susanti demanded the government reexamine the drafts of the omnibus law on job creation. She opined the bill contained paradigmatic errors that potentially contradicted the legal and regulatory system in Indonesia.
“The drafts must be withdrawn and rediscussed thoroughly with public participation. Don’t be rushed to discuss it now,” said Bivitri to Tempo on Sunday, February 16.
Among the issues highlighted by many legal experts is Article 170 of the bill in which stipulating that the government will be allowed to amend Job Creation Law (after it is released) and its provisions that are not noted through a presidential regulation (PP).
In addition, the government could consult with the House of Representatives (DPR), while in fact, Article 20 of Constitutional Law 1945 underlined that the law formation is under the authority of the DPR.
Another constitutional law expert Refly Harun deemed that the government took a shortcut for the sake of efficient time in drafting the bill. He reminded the government that they must build a system. “They consider themselves trusted. But power must be shared, controlled, and comply with the system and state principles,” Refly said on Sunday.
The Indonesia Ombudsman commissioner Alamsyah Saragih also suggested the government review the drafts of the omnibus law again considering there is still quite time to adopt the proper procedure in making policy.
“This bill has a broad impact on the implementation of public services in the licensing sector, including the welfare of the people,” said Alamsyah on Sunday, February 16.
