JAKARTA, Public Relations—The chief of Slogoretno Village cof Wonogiri Regency, Suparmanto S. M.; the lurah of Popongan Village of Karanganyar Regency, Regency; and the lurah of Kepatihan Wetan Village of Surakarta City won first, second, and third places at the constitution speech contest between lurahs/village chiefs in all of Solo in 2022 on Saturday, June 19, 2022. The contest, organized by the Constitutional Court (MK) and the Law Faculty of Universitas Sebelas Maret (FH UNS), took place at the Amiek Sumindriyatmi Hall, Building III of FH UNS.

Each of the ten finalists performed a speech pertaining to the Constitutional Court’s landmark decisions, such as that on marriageable age and religious blasphemy. As the government that is the closest to the people, the village spearheads the efforts to realizing the people’s welfare, especially in economy, and creating a society that observes the Constitution. Therefore, hopefully through the contest, lurahs/village chiefs could play a role in improving constitutional awareness and introducing the Constitutional Court’s decisions along with the Constitutional Court.
