    "As the chairman of the House of Representatives representing the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle, all aspects of the study will be studied and evaluated," she concluded.

    law expert Refly Harun spoke out about extending the presidential term limits. According to him, the extension or trimming of presidential term limits will not affect President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo.

    "We must begin to distance the debate about extending the president’s term limits from the current president. Anything that changes in the future will not affect President Jokowi's tenure," Refly said in a discussion with, Central Jakarta on Sunday, 24 November 2019.

    He emphasized that Jokowi will continue to carry out his duties for five years. He claimed the revision will only apply to the president in the next period.
