"I have asked the Administrative and Bureaucratic Reform Minister to provide an opportunity for TPP to have their status raised to PPPK," he said at the Village Assistants Service Day event here on Friday.
According to the minister, the proposed change in status is part of efforts to ensure that village assistants continue to support the ministry in village community empowerment and development.

"Hopefully, next year, the data collection and mapping of TPP to become part of civil servants (ASNs) as PPPKs will start," he said.
Iskandar noted that this year, the Ministry of Administrative and Bureaucratic Reform is collecting data on contract-based staff at ministries, agencies, and regional governments for the purpose of mapping ASNs.
"The good news is the contract of TPPs will not be affected by the policy of eliminating non-ASN workers in ministries, agencies, and regional governments in 2023," he informed.
On that occasion, the minister also set October 7 as Village Assistants Service Day.
