“Minus Malum” of the Perppu on Job Creation
Government Regulation in Lieu of Law (Perppu) No. 2/2022 concerning job creation was issued over a month ago. The House of Representatives, however, has yet to deliberate the regulation.
The House was in recess when the Perppu was issued on 30 December, 2022. Although the House sitting session began again on 10 January, the Perppu has yet to be deliberated. Meanwhile, the House is set to enter another recess period on 14 February.
Article 22 Paragraph (2) of the 1945 Constitution states that a Perppu must obtain the approval of the House in the following sitting session. According to Paragraph (3), if approval is not granted, the Perppu must be revoked.
