JAKARTA, Public Relations—After the 2020 regional election results (pilkada) disputes were all settled, the Constitutional Court (MK) is now prepared to continue its duty to rule on judicial review of laws against the 1945 Constitution. Therefore, to reinvent cooperation and coordination with the National Police, Secretary-General M. Guntur Hamzah along with the Head of the Public Relations and Protocol Bureau Heru Setiawan, the Head of the General Bureau Elisabeth, and the Head of the Legal and Registrar Administration Bureau Tatang Garjito visited the Police Chief Gen. Listyo Sigit Prabowo at the Police Headquarters, Jakarta on Thursday, June 3, 2021.

In an interview after the meeting, Guntur revealed two topics of the meeting: improving security in the Constitutional Court after pilkada resolution, improving the quality of the human resources that the national police assigned in the Court. He stressed that when the Court resumes with its judicial review, there might be cases that might attract public attention or concerns sensitive issues. “So, [the Court] hopes security details remains for the safety of its environment.”

He also hoped that the police officers stationed in the Court will receive education and training to improve their quality and their skills. He expected both institutions would be able to continue their synergy in the future.
