ARB INdonesia, RIAU – Not even a year in office, Riau Governor Syamsuar has carried out a massive mutation.
The governor who was appointed by President Joko Widodo on February 20, 2019 has just appointed 737 new officials within the Riau Provincial Government.
The inauguration of echelon III and IV officials conducted at Menara Bank Riau-Kepri Jl Sudirman Pekanbaru was led by Deputy Governor of Riau, Edy Natar Nasution, Tuesday (1/7/2020).
But the inauguration of the new official has drawn controversy and has come under the spotlight of various parties. The reason, many families of Riau Governor Syamsuar and the family of Riau Province Secretary Yan Yan Prana Jaya were appointed officials.
The governor’s son-in-law, wife, son-in-law, brother, sister, and Riau Regional Secretary’s aide were appointed as new officials. On the other hand, many officials who have qualifications have been promoted or do not get positions.
Responding to this, the Riau Regional House of Representatives (DPRD) plans to form a special committee (Pansus) to investigate the appropriateness of the appointed officials.
This was stated by the Chairperson of the Riau DPRD Democratic Faction, Agung Nugroho, to Riau Pos (Jawapos / Pojoksatu.id group) on Thursday (1/9/2020) yesterday.
Agung Nugroho said, the proposal to form a special committee had arrived from several factions in the DPRD Riau.
“Indeed, several factions have suggested that this be investigated. Because after the inauguration there were many questions from the public. Why officials who have competence but instead are non-job, there are many officials from the regions. Plus there is an issue that is inaugurated as a relative of the leader who served, “said Agung.
Agung said that the plan to form a special committee was indeed merely a proposal. Later, through plenary, the council will ask for proposals from factions to be submitted officially. So that the people’s representatives can make a special agenda. So far, he said, the formation of the special committee had been conveyed orally to the Riau DPRD leadership.
“Why is this important, because it concerns the performance of the government in running the APBD. At the same time answering questions from the public, does the newly appointed official have competence, “he explained.
When asked, when the board will hold a meeting, he said he would do it in the near future. Even if it is likely to be held next week.
“It’s likely next week. Hopefully there are no obstacles, “he added.
