(Tempo) Deputy Speakers Taufik: DPR Hails Jokowi's Performance, Condemns Police Chief Conflict


House of Representatives' (DPR) Deputy Speaker Taufik Kurniawan said on Saturday, February 7, 2015, that his institution appreciated last year’s works performed by President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo.

According to Taufik, Jokowi’s impromptu visits, to be directly engaged in the issues faced by people, are excellent examples for government officials.

However, Taufik said that the polemic of Comr. Gen. Budi Gunawan’s nomination as the National Police Chief candidate has changed the situation.

“The political dynamics have turned the other way,” he said.

Taufik revealed that the House had left the issue on Jokowi’s hand since it is president’s prerogative right. He added that the House of Representatives would not interfere with the decision as Jokowi might need some time to consider the situation.

Earlier in January 2015, Jokowi announced Budi Gunawan, former Megawati Soekarnoputri’s aide, as the sole National Police Chief candidate. Several days after the announcement, the Corruption Eradication Commission named Budi Gunawan as a suspect in a graft case. Despite the suspect naming, the House’s commission for legal affairs approved Budi as the National Police Chief candidate.
