"As far as I know, the letter (did not mention the president's approval or disapproval on the revision). It only assigns government representatives," Soesatyo remarked at the parliament complex here on Thursday.
Soesatyo noted that the letter was received on Wednesday as confirmed by the House's Secretariat General.
In the letter, the president has assigned the law and human rights minister and state apparatus empowerment minister to represent the government in the discussion.

Revision to the law on the anti-graft body was initiated by the House of Representatives for discussion and approval prior to the conclusion of its serving period in October 2019.
Responding to the House's initiative, the KPK, in its statement, refused the revision of the law as, learning from the widely distributed draft, it has the potential to paralyze the KPK as an independent anti-graft institution.
“With the occurrences and agenda recently, we have to state that the KPK is currently hanging by a thread,” KPK Chairman Rahardjo remarked. Related news: Revision of KPK Law to boost its performance: VP Kalla
