Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – The government has confirmed that it will postpone the elimination of 2.3 million honorary workers until December 2024. In fact, honorary workers should have been removed in November this year.
Along with the postponement plan, bad news came from the number of honorary staff.
Deputy Chairman of Commission II of the DPR from the PDI-P faction, Junimart Girsang, said that the number of honorary staff with high potential is increasing at the moment. It is based on the report contained in halojg.id. Meanwhile, the halojg.id site is a complaint site managed by Junimart.
According to Junimart, there is data on at least 3.38 million honorary workers who reported that they were not included in the data on honorary workers that had been recorded by the government with the latest number being 2.3 million. Thus, the total number of honorary workers is estimated to increase by 5.6 million.
“Previously 2.3 million were registered more or less, so if 2.3 is added to 3.38 million it becomes 5.6 million,” said Junimart during a working meeting with the Minister of PANRB, Heads of BKN, LAN and ANRI at the Parliament Building, Jakarta , quoted Thursday (14/9/2023).
Junimart revealed that the honorary staff who had reported to Commission II were now afraid that they would be expelled for free when the official abolition of the honorary staff was implemented in December 2024, with all being targeted for November 2023.
“Generally they complain first that their data is not registered as honorary staff who were appointed as PPPK even though they have served for decades,” stressed Junimart.
Apart from that, according to Junimart, the honorary or non-ASN staff also expressed their concern that they would be replaced with entrusted or fictitious honorary staff. This is because the government has confirmed that the current number of honorary workers is only 2.3 million.
“Secondly, they are very worried that their data will be replaced with fictitious and fictitious honorary staff as has happened in several areas,” said Junimart.
Junimart also delivered documents and flash disks of reports from the honorary staff. The contents relate to their personal identity, agency, and length of service. The data was submitted to the Secretary of the PANRB Ministry, Rini Widyantini.
Meanwhile, Plt. Head of BKN Haryomo Dwi Putranto confirmed that up to now the data on honorary or non-state civil servants (ASN) that BKN has managed to obtain is only 2.3 million, there has been no change.
“At BKN there is already a database that records 2.3 million,” he said when met at the Parliament Complex, Jakarta, Wednesday (13/9/2023).
If the report on the swelling of honorary staff is as received by Commission II of the DPR, he believes that the audit must be carried out again by the BPKP. Therefore, he emphasized that the verification must clearly wait for the results of the BPKP audit.
“Then there was an additional proposal, we are waiting for a verification to be carried out first, a thorough audit by BPKP, this is so that we know too,” stressed Haryomo.
“But it is still coordinated by the Minister of PANRB, then a thorough audit is carried out on the honorary data that goes to BKN,” he added.
