JAKARTA (Yosefardi) – Former Speaker of the House of Representatives Setya Novanto, in his capacity as the Head of Golkar Party faction at the DPR, has just made rotation involving 23 Golkar lawmakers at the DPR, which trigger protest from some of those lawmakers.
The 23 Golkar lawmakers removed by Novanto are, among others, Bambang Soesatyo who switches off his position with Aziz Syamsuddin from the Secretary of Golkar faction to the Head of the Commission III.
While Tantowi Yahya switches off his position with Meutya Viada Hafid from the Deputy Head of the Commission I to the Deputy Head of the DPR’s Inter-Parliamentary Body (BKSAP).
But Tantowi protested the rotation as he questioned the letter of the rotation only signed by Novanto.
Fadel Muhammad, meanwhile, is removed from the Head of the Commission XI to become the Deputy Head of the Commission VII.
The same goes to Agus Gumiwang Kartasasmita that has been removed from the Commission VIII to the Commission XI.
Novanto also made rotation in the DPR’s ethical council (DPR) by appointing Lili Asdjudiredja, Saiful Bahri Ruray, and Ahmad Zacky Siradj to replace Ridwan Bae, Adies Kadir, and Kahar Muzakir respectively. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
