Weaknesses of Law Number 10 Year 2004

The order of legislation according to Law Number 10 of 2004 does not include MPR provisions in it. This means that there is a logical consequence of the loss of the MPR policy through the MPR decree as a legal product.

However, in paragraphs 1 to 5 of article 7 of Law number 10 of 2004 it is stated that laws and regulations other than those listed in the statutory order are recognized and have binding legal force as long as they are ordered by higher laws and regulations.

The two statements become contradictory or contradictory.

In addition, provisions regarding the preparation of laws and regulations and their amendments will be determined later by presidential regulation.

However, until this law is promulgated, the presidential regulation in question has not been issued by the president. In fact, the presidential regulation should have been attached together with the promulgation of this law.
