BANDUNG-Physically, Prosperous Justice Party (PKS) criticizes the existence of the Legislation Regulations on Community Organization (Perpu Ormas). Because the existence of the Perpu is not in accordance with the state of law.
"We understand that the President's prerogrative right to issue it, but physically as a Constitution must provide restrictions. The Perpu should be issued if the state is in critical condition and urgent," said Deputy Council of Syuro Council PKS Hidayat Nur Wahid told reporters in Bandung, not long ago.
Hidayat questioned the Perpu Ormas because during this four year period whether there is a critical event caused by the mass organizations.
"What is the crucial incident that compels the issue of mass organizations? Is there any organization that during that time to do something crucial then make Indonesia cranky," he said.
According to him, it is precisely the general public judge that the current precarious situation when Indonesia's increasingly bloated debt amounts to 3,600 trillion.
"It means 1.5 times that of Indonesian State Budget but, is not there about Perpu about Indonesia's debt?" He explained.
"In principle we criticize and will refuse this perpu in time will be heard in the House of Representatives (DPR)," he added.
He considered that the Perpu does not target certain organizations so that it is public, anyone can be exposed to this perpu.
It is said Hidayat Nur Wahid, there are some irregularities in the perpu mass organizations. First eliminated the check and re-check process through the court mechanism if then there is a verdict too how to compare this verdict.
"It means to change our commitment as a state of law in accordance with Article 1 paragraph 3 of the Constitution by making the state power and it is not in accordance with the principles of the Constitution," he explained.
Second, the perpu contains 'rubber' articles because it will target all the existing organizations. Anyone who does not comply with this interpretation will be subject to the article and be subject to five years to life penalty sanctions.
Furthermore, Hidayat added that the articles in the legislation are not in accordance with the principles of the rule of law, human rights regulated in article 28 and 28 d paragraph 3 and 28 e verse 3 including the MPR because in the Perpu mentioned that whoever changes the Constitution base will also be affected by the article contained in the Perpu, as amending the Constitution is a right that has been granted to members of the MPR.
"The Perpu is very hasty and contains so many rubber articles provisions that must be criticized, besides institutions such as LBH, Imparsial, Kontras and law institutions and all campuses refuse the mass organizations," he concluded. (MAT)
