On October 23, 2018, the President held a closed cabinet meeting and discussed the continuation of the deliberation of the Land Bill. The Bill, as we all know, was included in the National Legislative Program (Prolegnas) in 2015. A draft exists and the Government had submitted a problem inventory (DIM) on said draft to the House of Representatives at the end of 2017. But Government ministries responsible for agrarian issues have supposedly been unable to come to an agreement on some matters and hence the deliberation of the Bill has been delayed. The ministries have supposedly found common ground. Does this mean we will see a new Land Bill passed?
