INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Chairman of the DPP PPP Romahurmuziy affirmed his party rejected the plan to build a new House of Representatives and an apartment intended for members of the House because of the current slowdown in the growth of purchasing power in all segments of society.

"It is very unsympathetic if the current decline in purchasing power of the people but the House of Representatives proposed the addition of infrastructure that is not a priority," Romahurmuziy said at the Nusantara Building on Wednesday (16/08/2017)

Romi said that the House should be able to show empathy to the people and at least show the performance rather than want the facilities.

Members of Commission XI of the House of Representatives explained that the financial deficit in the RAPBN 2017 reached 2.92 percent, meaning that there is only 0.08 percent left to the limit under the Act.

"Therefore, if the House wants the construction of the building, I once again emphasize the performance show first, prove that the House of Representatives of this period shows the performance first just talk about the budget," he said.

He asserted that the current that must be proven by the Parliament is the improvement of performance especially the performance of legislation.

According to him, what is appreciated by President Joko Widodo in the Annual Session of the People's Consultative Assembly related to DPR legislative performance is not just an appreciation that is normatively given by the President since the House has passed 14 Laws.

"The number 14 itself is certainly far from the 59 prolegnas that have been established so far, and even though the House is entering its third year, it is certainly a flog of the President to the House of Representatives to further improve performance," he told media.

Romi considered all parties should respect when the Government building construction, and included in the APBN submitted to the Parliament. According to him, the House should also respect it as a shared desire.
