INDUSTRY.co.id - Cikarang- President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) asserted that in Indonesia there is currently no absolute power or absolute power, because there is a press / media, an NGO.

"I need to say that there is no absolute power right now, no press, no media, no NGOs, no supervision in the House of Representatives, and the people can monitor directly," said President Joko Widodo in Cikarang, Bekasi, West Java, Friday (07/28/2017)

The statement responded to a message from 6th President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono regarding the power holders should not abuse his power indefinitely.

"Power must not go unchecked, meaning that we must ensure that the use of power by power holders does not exceed the limits, so that it does not enter the so-called 'abuse of power' Many lessons in this country, when the use of power goes beyond the limits of the area of ​​abuse of power, Then the people use the correction as a form of correction to the state," said SBY in Hambalang, Bogor, West Java on Thursday (27/7).

President Jokowi also considered that there is no absolute power in Indonesia, including when the government issued Government Regulation in Lieu of Law (Perppu) No. 2 of 2017 on Social Organizations.

"And I also need to say that the Perppu is the product of the law, and in issuing the Perppu there is also the mechanism After the President issued the Perppu, there is another mechanism in the DPR and there is a democratic mechanism, there are some factions either agree or Do not agree with the meaning now there is no absolute or absolute power, (absolute power) from where? No," said the President.

The President also assesses the parties that there is an absolute power in this country is an exaggerated statement.

"(The statement) is much exaggerated, especially after the council there will be another process, if not agree to the Constitutional Court, is not it? We are a democracy as well as a state law, so the process is very open once If there is an additional demo It's okay, so do not overestimate things that really do not exist," explained the President.

Related to the meeting of the Democratic Party Chairman Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono and Gerindra Party Chairman Prabowo Soebianto, the President considers it to be an ordinary meeting.

"The meeting of the figures, my party meetings is mediocre, very good, but I need to say that as a nation we have agreed democratically to resolve every difference, every problem with deliberation and consensus," said the President.

Perppu No. 2 year 2017 is the amendment to Law No. 17 of 2013 on Community Organization (Perppu Ormas).

The Public Organization was issued because the government considered that Law No. 17 of 2013 is no longer sufficient to prevent the spread of ideology that contradicts Pancasila and the 1945 Constitution.

The impact of this Perppu is the Ministry of Law and Human Rights has the authority to revoke or cancel the legal status of organizations that are considered contrary to Pancasila and the 1945 Constitution, including the revocation of Hizbut Tharir Indonesia (HTI) legal entity starting July 19, 2017.
