The plan to amend the Law No. 30/2002 on the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) is one of the best examples of today’s political hypocrisy. The Bill on the Amendment of the KPK Law was included in the 2016 Prioritized National Legislation Program (Prolegnas) as an initiative of the House of Representatives (DPR), with six factions of political parties—the ruling party PDI-P, Nasdem, Golkar, PPP, Hanura, and PKB—acting as endorsers. At the plenary meeting held by the DPR’s Legislation Body (Baleg) last Wednesday (Feb. 10), three other factions—the Democratic Party, PKS, and PAN—joined the six endorsers of the bill. Gerindra alone rejected the bill. But all of a sudden, the Democratic Party and PKS decided to withdraw their support. For that, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (SBY) and his Democratic Party (and PKS) harvested a lot of praise from the public. Surprised?To subscribe please click here
