RECONSTRUCTION PROPOSAL REPRESENTATIVE COUNCIL INITIATIVES AREA REPUBLIC INDONESIA IN EXECUTING LEGISLATION FUNCTIONS FOR REALIZING SOVEREIGNTY PEOPLE
Main Article Content
In the legislative function, the DPD has the authority to submit and participate in discussing bills related to regional autonomy, central and regional relations, formation and expansion and merger of regions, management of natural resources and other economic resources, as well as those related to financial balance between the center and the regions as referred to in Article 22D paragraph (1) and paragraph (2) of the 1945 Constitution of the Republic of Indonesia. Furthermore, the birth of the DPD RI is also interpreted as an optimization of Indonesia's representative institutions. The need for a two-chamber parliamentary system is important given the need to guarantee checks and balances mechanisms within the representative institutions themselves. However, in current practice the implementation of the legislative function is still far from expectations, so it is necessary to reconstruct the implementation of the legislative function owned by the DPD in realizing the ideal of people's sovereignty.
