Minister of Law and Human Rights Yasonna Laoly signed the draft of Constitutional Court Bill in the DPR Commission III meeting room at the Parliament Building Complex, Senayan, Jakarta, Monday (31/8/2020).

The House of Representatives (DPR) and the government recently passed the second revision of the Constitutional Court Law. The law revision was deliberated quickly, and took only seven days to complete. It was also conducted behind closed doors. The public’s suspicions, that the revision was laden with vested interests, have only grown (Kompas, 27/8).

Pangeran Khairul Saleh, who headed the House working committee for the deliberation of the proposed Constitution Court law revision, said that the deliberation was held in a closed-door session so as not to cause any misunderstandings (Kompas, 28/8). This excuse undermines the people’s common sense. Misunderstandings always arise from exclusion, not from inclusion.
