Special Committee Chairman: Law on Public Organization Needs Review
TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:Chairman of Special Committee for a bill on Mass Organizations Abdul Malik Haramain expressed the need to revise the Law No. 8 of 1985 on Mass Organizations. “The Law has a centralist paradigm and I think it's no longer relevant with the current decentralized system,” he said at the Aula Wisma Traksakti Building on May 7, 2012.
According to Haramain, the Law no. 8 is also the product of a closed, centralized and authoritarian government. The law also has inadequacies, he said, “It means there are still a lot of things that need to be governed by the law, such as foreign public organizations. It is an incomplete law.”
He also pointed out that the Law No. 8 neither outlines clearly Government's obligations as regards public organizations. "That's why, the revision is needed to ensure detailed and clear regulations regarding public organizations.”
He added that the revision is stalled at this time. He assures that the revised law will not be repressive towards public organizations. “We look forward to an efficient and operational Law,” he said.
