Total Suara : 622168
Re-elected as a Senator in the 2014-2019 period from the constituency of North Sumatera, Prof. Dr Ir. Hj. Darmayanti Lubis gained 622 168 votes. Born in Binjai, May 6, 1951, Darmayanti Lubis could not be separated from her mission of strengthening the DPD RI in constitutional, so that the role and function can be more powerful and dignified.
According to Darmayanti Lubis, indeed after nearly 10 years of existence, DPD RI has not been known by the public. DPD is not similar to DPR. Meanwhile, DPD RI is also the same as MPs. "It is not easy to socialize DPD, because it is not similar to DPR. Though both MPs," she said.
Darmayanti added, the constitution does not provide sufficient authority for DPD. There are limitations in the scope of the region, making it difficult to equalize the DPD with the DPR RI, which both have a supervisory function. "So this is what makes DPD has not been widely known to the public. But if DPD is given the same function, DPD will at least has legislation that can accommodate regional aspirations. And there should be a legal protection," said Darmayanti Lubis.11 Oktober 2014
