Pratikno explained that after the government received the Work Creation Bill documents from the DPR on October 14, the Ministry of State Secretariat immediately conducted a review.

“The Ministry of State Secretariat has conducted a review and found a number of technical errors. The Ministry of State Secretariat has also submitted it to the DPR Secretariat General to agree on the repairs,” he said.

After being signed by Jokowi on Monday (2/11) afternoon, the manuscript was uploaded to the official website of the State Secretariat (Setneg) that same day.

The manuscripts uploaded to the State Secretariat’s official website totaled 1,187 pages, more than the 812 pages deposited by the DPR in mid-October.

However, after 24 hours the manuscript was on the State Secretariat’s website, a number of parties who had downloaded it found errors or irregularities. One of the first things that sticks out is the irregularity in Article 6 which refers to Article 5.

Regarding this, DPR Baleg member Arteria Dahlan also questioned the irregularities.

Furthermore, the PDIP politician stated that he asked the government to return the text of the Ciptaker Law to the DPR Baleg. He said that his party would re-search and return the text of the Ciptaker Law in accordance with the agreement at the DPR Baleg.

“We are ready to return it and fix it straight away. The government will give the logo of the President of the Republic of Indonesia. We fix it so we don’t get noisy anymore. Arteria Dahlan is personally ready to repair it,” he said when contacted by, Tuesday.

On the one hand, Constitutional Law Expert Bivitri Susanti said the irregularities in this article could be brought to the Constitutional Court (MK) as evidence of the government’s lack of seriousness in working on the Ciptaker Law.

“This is an additional reason. It deserves to be canceled to abort all laws (Ciptaker). One of the articles cannot be implemented,” he said.

Bivitri assessed that the irregularities in this article were a form of deliberation of laws carelessly by the government.
