Jakarta: House of Representatives (DPR) Deputy Speaker Azis Syamsudin believes that National Police's Criminal Investigation Unit head Commissioner General Idham Azis is capable to lead the law enforcement agency.
The police general is the only candidate to replace newly inaugurated Home Affairs Minister Tito Karnavian as National Police chief.
"Hopefully (It can become better)," the Functional Groups (Golkar) Party lawmaker said here on Thursday, October 24, 2019.
The DPR Commission III overseeing legal affairs would study President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo's letter concerning Idham's nomination. The commission would hold a fit and proper test in the near future.
"We would hold a fit and proper test after we establish the commission," Azis remarked.
The legislative body received the president's letter on Tuesday, October 22, 2019. The letter states that Idham is a capable and qualified National Police chief candidate.
