Jakarta: The employees association (WP) of the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) hopes that President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo will appoint people with high integrity to be the members of the Supervisory Board of KPK.
“Integrity is the most important foundation of the supervisory board.” WP KPK chairperson, Yudi Purnomo, said here on Wednesday, November 6, 2019.
Yudi said that the Supervisory Board has a central role, especially in giving permission to conduct raid and confiscation.
He hopes that the member candidates of the KPK’s Supervisory Board possess a good track record in all related aspects.
“There will be five members in the Supervisory Board. And their main duty is to supervise the KPK’s leadership, not to collaborate with them,” he said.
The Spokesperson for the President, Fadjroel Rachman, has ensured that the Supervisory Board will be filled with professionals. The Presidential Staff is currently selecting candidates for the Supervisory Board.
Fadjroel added that the selection process still takes place despite the new KPK law currently being examined at the Constitutional Court (MK). (Translator: Muhammad Gestinev)
