Syahmud added that Bambang would put the institution’s interest above his personal interest. Bambang, he went on, shows exemplary characteristics and communication skills.

“His performance as the chairman of DPR’s Commission III shows that he will be able to establish an effective communication at the legislative institution,” he said.

According to Syahmud, a DPR Speaker must be able to have equal qualities and achievements as shown by Setya. He referred to Setya’s ability to lead the DPR as an institution that makes laws, control policies, and plays a key role in state budget decisions.

[Setya] Novanto has great achievement in the dynamics of the relationship between the parliament and government,” he said.
