Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – The House of Representatives confirmed that the draft law (RUU) will accommodate sanctions for regional heads who appoint temporary workers, following efforts to stop the recruitment of honorary workers within the government.
Deputy Chairman of Commission II DPR Syamsurizal prepared sanctions against regional heads in the form of reprimands and administrative sanctions.
“There are no criminal rules, only sanctions that can be reprimanded or what it will be like later,” he said after a meeting with the government about the State Civil Apparatus Bill, at the DPR Building, Jakarta, quoted on Tuesday (29/8/2023).
Previously, the Minister for Administrative Reform and Bureaucratic Reform had asked local governments as well as ministries and agencies to no longer recruit honorary workers.
Recruitment haphazardly, he said, could undermine the amount needed for ASN formations and the quality of human resources for government employees. In November 2023, the government will even abolish the status of temporary workers.
Syamsurizal believes that the ASN Bill needs to regulate sanctions for regional heads who violate this recommendation. He said the rules need to exist so that regional heads do not make arbitrary appointments.
“This confirmation is necessary so that the regent does not act arbitrarily,” he said.
Deputy for Apparatus HR of the Ministry of PANRB Alex Denni also said that the sanctions for regional heads who appoint honorary workers vary.
He said one of the sanctions was administrative in nature. “According to the legislation, it has been regulated. The sanctions can be administrative,” said Alex.
