Ahead of the selection process for new commissioners of the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) for period of 2019-2023, President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo said that he fully trusts the Selection Committee (Pansel) to choose the best candidates.

“The President has called on us (the KPK selection committee) to carry out the mandate in choosing the best commissioners since the KPK has a crucial role to eradicate corruption,” Chairman of the KPK Selection Committee Yenti Garnasih said after meeting with President Jokowi at the Merdeka Palace, Jakarta, Monday (17/6).

On the occasion, President Jokowi also emphasized his commitment to prevent and combat corruption, especially for the next four years after the commissioners are appointed.

According to Yenti, the Pansel has freedom to choose any selection mechanism to find potential candidates with strong managerial skills.

In the meantime, a Pansel member, Harkristuti Harkrisnowo, said that the registration for KPK commissioners’ candidates will open from 17 June to 4 July 2019.

The registration documents should be submitted to the Pansel Secretariat for the KPK Commisioners’ Candidates at Office of Ministry of State Secretariat, Building I, 2nd Floor, Jalan Veteran No. 18, Central Jakarta 10110. The documents can also be submitted via email to panselkpk2019@setneg.go.id. (FID/JAY/ES)
