The KPK Chief will serve full term

The Chief of the Constitutional Court Mahfud MD announced yesterday that the Chief of the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) i.e. Busyro Muqoddas, should serve full 4-years term, not just one year as decided by the House of Representative when they elected him on December 2010.

The Court's ruling was made in response to the request the Legal Aid Foundation (LBH) and Indonesian Corruption Watch (ICW) that office term of the Chief of KPK should be 4 years as stipulated in Article 34 of the KPK Law.

I hope that with this ruling, the KPK would be more confident in fighting corruptions, and the government and its law enforcement agencies would always give their full support.

A small step to real independence ( from political whims).

pemimpin dan wakil KPk menurutku berbarengan saja masa baktinya, jadi tidak perlu dipaksa 4-5 tahun

@Salesman Jogya,
Memang masalahnya rumit.

@Attayaya-Solar,
Seharusnya tahun lalu DPR memilih Ketua KPK 4 tahun bukan 1 tahun.
