MD3 Law will still remain in force if president does not sign it.

REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA -- House Speaker Bambang Soesatyo is confident of President Joko Widodo signing the second revision of Law No. 17 of 2014 on Legislative Institutions (MD3 Law) that was enacted into law during the House's plenary session. He explained that based on the standing mechanism, the second amendment of the MD3 Law will remain in force starting next March, if the president does not sign it.

"We are still convinced that the president will sign it. If eventually the president does not sign it, the law will still remain in force based on the existing mechanism," he remarked in Jakarta on Wednesday.

He said the House's Legislation Body has deliberated on the second revision of the MD3 Law based on the mechanism involving the government.

"The law was deliberated by the House and government. I am sure the president will sign it. It will be in force in March," he added.

Soesatyo did not question if some quarters are willing to file a judicial review against it in the Constitutional Court.

A judicial review will serve as a means of correction for the House that is open to such a move.

"It is a mechanism permitted by the law. We are open to any judicial review," he stated.

During its plenary session on Monday (Feb 12), the House of Representatives agreed to the second amendment of the MD3 Law with several changes.

The changes concern the addition of seats for legislative institutions' leaders comprising three in the People's Consultative Assembly, one in the House of Representatives, and one in the Regional Representative Council. The change is the forced summoning mechanism of state officials or members of the public, involving police officers.
