President Jokowi: Government Can Disband Anti-Pancasila Community Organizations
Date 5 Mei 2017
President Joko Jokowi Widodo said the Government could disband anti-Pancasila community organizations in order to keep law and order in the society.
However, the disbandment of those organizations, the President said, is not to hinder the democratization process in Indonesia.
We live in a democratic country. In this democratic country, feel free if you want to stage a rally. However, there are rules to follow (some of which) are not disturb others and keep public order and security in the city and in the country, the President said after attending the opening ceremony of the 1st National Working Meeting and the 2017 Halaqoh (small group discussion) on National Economy hosted by the Nahdliyin Employers Association in Jagakarsa, South Jakarta, Friday (5/5).
If those community organizations begin to disturb public order, the President further said, the Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal, and Security Affairs will do something about it.
President Jokowi also hopes that this issue will not exhaust energy that could have been used for more productive things. Nevertheless, the President ensured that the plan of the Coordinating Minister is purely to maintain security and order. Our energy must not be used up for unproductive things. Are we going to do it over and over again? No, were not. I repeat, no! the firmly President said.
Therefore, President Jokowi asserted that if there were movements can potentially disrupt security, the Coordinating Minister would take actions. (DNS/JAY/ES) (Naster/YM/EP)
