Wahidin Ismail: The fifth amendment of the 1945 is our will
Jakarta, dpd.go.id. – The legislative heavy issues that were raised by former vice president of the New Order era, Tri Sutrisno, become a special note in the effort for the fifth amendment of the 1945. It is because the public views that the four amendments made previously could not even change the condition into a better nation, the morale of the nation was torn apart.
“How to grow the moral nation with four times of amendment? People assume that the bawdy-chaotic of this country is due to the reckless amendment, even though it’s riot has nothing to do with the amendment “said Ray Rangkuti on the State Dialogue organized by the DPD RI in DPD RI Building, Parliament Complex Senayan Jakarta (01/02/2012). Furthermore, this Lingkar Madani Indonesia Coordinator highlighted the lack of control of public view.
“Precisely, this country will be destroyed if the constitution is not amended,” said Margarito Kamis in a dialogue with the theme “Is Amendment Destroying the Nation?” He cited the history of Indonesia in 1965 and 1998 that experienced the riots and was saved by amendment. According to him, the 1945 also has shortcomings that must be perfected by amendment. “Our constitution also set procedures for constitutional change,” added this expert in Constitutional Law.
One member of the DPD RI who is also present in the dialogue, Wahidin Ismail, stated that the benefits of the reform were clearly there, but there are still things that need to be refined. “So, this amendment is our will,” concluded this DPD RI member from West Papua Province. (af / saf)
