The New Chief Corruption Fighter

Busyro Muqoddas has been elected head of Indonesia  
Busyro Muqoddas has been elected by the House of Representatives Commission III as the Chief of Corruption Erradication Commission (KPK).

Out of 55 members of the Commission III, which oversees Legal Affairs, 34 have voted for Busyro, current Chief of the Judicial Commission, 20 voted for Bambang Widjajanto, Lawyer, 1 abstained.


According to The Jakarta Globe, Busyro has impressed House members with his desire to see stronger punishment for those convicted for corruption and his proposal to make Corruption a Human Rights violation rather than just an ordinary Crime.

Although Busyro would only be Chief of KPK for a period of one year, however I hope that he would be able to do his job smoothly.

Great to see a new Chief! But everybody makes promises before they get appointed to such positions! Only time can say if he can stick to his words :) I hope to see him bring corruption down to level zero.

@TUKANG CoLoNG,
Beritanya memang demikian.

@Ibucketbot,
Let's be positive and hope that he'll be able to keep his promises during his one year (only) term.

The appointment. At long last. Let's hope his tough words will be followed up by diligence and energetic abd independently tracing, investigating and legal action against all major cases of graft and corruption.

Hi Rob

The parliament chooses the man suitable only for themselves, and for only one year.
