In his statement, the Chairman of KAMMI Semarang Sigit Tirto Utomo stated that his party firmly rejects the Perppu because it is no better than the Ordinance Act No. 17 of 2013.

Sigit explained that article 59 paragraph 3 in the Perppu states that mass organizations that violate public order, disturbing the public, damaging the facility and the criticism of state officials can be disrupted until dissolved. The point is judged as one of the nature of dictatorial rule.

Furthermore, Sigit said, KAMMI invites the pros and cons of the Perppu to to scientifically mengiaog.

“We invite organizations of pros and cons with this issue to dialogue with us, our study is scientific, our study based on the Perppu is self-contained, we involve legal persons, not intimidation,” he concluded.
