According to the Vice Chairman of the Assembly, by appointing Aziz Syamsuddin, Setya Novanto automatically resigned from the position of Chairman of the House.
The appointment of Aziz as Chairman of the House by Setya Novanto, according to Mahyudin, does not matter because until now Setya is still Chairman of the Golkar Party, and the position of the House Speaker is Golkar.
"That's the prerogative of the Chairman, especially if it's not normal, not a normal condition, so it's fine," he said.
Under normal circumstances, he said, Setya Novanto might bring the issue in the Golkar DPP meeting. However, he continued, it was for the sake of democratization in the party.
"But now the conditions are not normal, it is not a matter of the Chairman directly appointing the successor of the House of Representatives," he said.

"Aziz is not the person yesterday afternoon, Aziz is now Chairman of the Budget Agency of the House of Representatives, previously once chairman of the commission.Natural if now rose to the Speaker of the House," he said.
