“We are currently in the stage where we are still listening to public opinions," the Funtional Groups (Golkar) lawmaker said here on Monday, November 18,2019.
"Until now, we have yet to receive any proposal to amend the constitution," he said.
Golkar Party, Prosperous Justice Party (PKS) and Democrat Party are said to disagree with the proposed amendment of the constitution.
The Leadership of MPR has made visits to several parties at their headquarters to
discuss the proposed amendment of the 1945 constitution since two weeks ago.
“It is important first to listen to public and parties' aspirations to know which matters we
must focus on," he said.
“We still have very long time to decide until 2023. If there has been no proposal submitted, then we should not make the decision on the amendment yet,” said Bambang. (Translator: Muhammad Gestinev)
