Jokowi - JK Urged to Overhaul Political Party Regulation

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Indonesia Corruption Watch (ICW) performed an evaluation of three years of office of President Joko Widodo and Vice President Jusuf Kalla (Jokowi-JK) in corruption eradication. Based on ICW records, Jokowi's performance in eradicating political corruption is still not satisfactory.

ICW’s member of Political Corruption Division Alma Sjafrina mentioned that there are several important points in three years of Jokowi-JK terms of office relating to political corruption. Some of which pertain overhauling political party governance structure, formulation and issuance of General Elections Law that are combined into one regulation, and the use of the House of Representatives’ prerogative rights for Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK).

"In their nine agendas (Nawa Cita) Jokowi firmly and clearly wrote that he made commitments to overhaul the governance structure ofpoliticalparty, one of which includes cadre empowerment and funding. Jokowi also wrote that fund will be given to political parties through State Budget (APBN) and Regional Budget (APBD) and it will be done by revising Political Party Law ", she said on Friday, Oct. 20.

The restructuring of political parties, Alma continued, has not been carried out by Jokowi-JK administration. The government through Home Affairs Minister did revise the Government Regulation (PP) No. 5/2009 but it is not enough to overhaul political parties.
