BANDUNG-Vice Chairman of the House of Representatives Commission V Yudi Widiana asked the government to immediately propose a revision of Law No. 22 of 2009 on Traffic and Transportation Highway (UU LLAJ), related to polemics of app-based transportation services.
According to Yudi, the issue includes other ministries, like the Ministry of Communication. The Commission V also has some priority bill that must be passed this year, such as the Bill of Construction Services.
"The Commission V can not initiate as an initiative of the Parliament, because it involves linkages with other ministries, such as Ministry of Communication. It should be from the government,” said Yudi in a press release received jabarprov.go.id, Wednesday (16/3)
With the legal certainty of this government, Yudi hopes the horizontal conflicts that occurred in the community can be minimised.
"Do not let this creativity which helps the community was stigmatised by breaking the law," said a member of Parliament from the Electoral District of West Java IV.
On the other hand, with the presence of App-Based Transportation, is the momentum to improve the management of legal entities authorised taxi.
"Taxis also have to improve the online service, while it rates must also be competitive. So, this is a momentum to improve in various things,” he added.
Known, the Ministry of Transportation has given a recommendation letter to the Ministry of Communication and Information (Kemenkominfo) for immediate blocking of app-based transportation, such as Uber, Grab, and Gojek.
However, until now there has been no official information from the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology Rudiantara related this blocking issue.
