The COVID-19 pandemic is changing many plans. In politics, the House of Representatives (DPR) have decided to extend its recess period, and as a consequence, the discussion of the Omnibus Laws has been postponed. The General Election Commission (KPU), meanwhile, recently decided to delay some stages of the 2020 simultaneous regional elections but to keep the voting day as scheduled on September 23, 2020. The simultaneous regional elections aside, there are concerns about the 2020 National Games (PON), and not to mention that in the next few weeks, the country will enter the fasting month of Ramadan with the annual mass exodus (mudik) of Idul Fitri holiday.
