"Mr. SBY as Chairman of the Democratic Party provides information, input We fully support it," said Vice Chairman of Commission III of the House of Representatives Benny K. Harman in Jakarta, Saturday (28/10/2017)

He said that the meeting did not happen suddenly, but had been planned before. "It was not an impromptu but planned meeting that should be appreciated for creating conducive climate," he said.

SBY arrived at the Merdeka Palace at around 14:00 pm immediately greeted Minister of State Secretary Pratikno on the stairs next to the Merdeka Palace.

Head of Democratic Political Division of the Democratic Party Imelda Sari through his press release, explained there are two matters discussed in the meeting Ketok Demokrat Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono with President Jokowi.

The first discusses about Perppu No. 2 of 2017 which has been ratified into Law. SBY expressed his opinion that the dissolution of mass organizations should be done by the court.
