TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Head of the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) Firli Bahuri believes that streamlining the government system is a step to boost the anti-corruption culture in Indonesia.
"In the end, improving the government system will create a massive anti-corruption culture that will make Indonesian officials clean and professional," Bahuri twitted on Saturday.
The agency head later noted that improvement in the government system in terms of the anti-corruption culture can be conducted comprehensively, starting from the legislative to judicial and executive institutions.
In the legislative body, Bahurli has urged legislators to look into the likelihood of flaws in regulations in Indonesia that can cause deviations in the implementation process.
Furthermore, he called on officials to ensure that the judiciary in Indonesia is implemented fairly.
Thus, the public will not only see the perpetrators of corruption being judged according to their actions but will also get a sense of justice that has been fulfilled, especially justice from a legal point of view.
"Most importantly, the state budget (APBN) and regional state budget (APBD) must be overlooked properly since executive officials are the ones holding the money and power," he added.
Hence, he noted that for fulfiling their duties, executive officials must ensure that the government has complied with the law as well as ethics and morals in their behavior.
Through these two points, executive officials will be able to be honest, professional, accountable, and fair as state administrators.
In addition, he highlighted the role of political parties in the anti-corruption culture. He affirmed that with public officials coming from political parties, it becomes increasingly important for them to demonstrate that they are free from corruption.
"Hopefully, in future, we would witness fewer corruption cases around us owing to continuous improvement in the government system," he added.
