Context and Objectives
The House of Representatives (DPR) or the Parliament of Indonesia has three different functions: legislation, budgeting, and oversight of the government. As the legislative authority, the House incorporates public will into law. However, given Indonesia’s archipelagic geography, determining the public will directly from its citizens is challenging for members of Parliament.
With technological advances, communicating with constituents has become easier. Citizens can access public information on Parliament’s website at dpr.go.id and learn of legislation being drafted. However, the information on Parliament’s website is mostly limited and outdated.  It is possible for Parliament to have already concluded legislation before citizens have access to information they need in order to participate in the process. Additionally, Parliament’s information disclosure policy does not specifically regulate what legislative information should be made available concurrently with the legislation process.
Opening up public access to information is mandated by Law No. 14/2008 on Public Information Disclosure.  The Law explicitly states that the purpose of disclosing information to the public is important to encourage greater citizen participation in the process of policy-making.
Within Parliament, information disclosure is regulated further by House Regulation No.1/2010 on Information Disclosure.  The regulation specifies that all information pertaining to the organizational structure, programs, activities and performance, as well as an audited report of the House budget are deemed public information  that must be made available to the public. Exceptions  are made only for sensitive information that (i) may endanger national security, (ii) private information, (iii) confidential information, and (iv) undocumented information. Despite this regulation, Parliament has not consistently provided the most updated and recent public information on its website. Therefore, it has remained difficult for citizens to comprehensively inform themselves of House legislation.
Despite the Law and the House Regulation mandating proper information disclosure, Parliament has never established a clear compliance mechanism. For example, as access to legislative information remains low, citizen participation has also been strictly limited to conventional means, such as in-person participation and mail correspondence. 
To overcome this problem, Parliament developed a Legislative Information System (Sileg). It was intended to make it easier for citizens to access up-to-date and comprehensive legislative information. However, Parliament has not maintained the application  and it’s information is outdated and limited. A representative from the Indonesian Parliamentary Center (IPC) , which helped develop this commitment, stated a main problem was the lack of an enforcement mechanism to ensure Parliament’s compliance.
This commitment aims to redesign the Sileg application to better cater to the needs of an open parliamentary process. The current practice within Parliament is to publish legislative information after the legislative process has ended. This prevents the public voice from being considered during the legislative process. Therefore, the application will be designed to specifically ensure that Parliament publishes legislative information during the drafting stage, allowing citizens to access a draft law and form their opinions. The application will have a comment box for citizens to submit feedback directly.
Additionally, this commitment will build capacity of Parliament’s secretariat staff in managing legislative information and data. The House Secretariat will conduct routine evaluations to ensure compliance across Parliamentary work units.
This commitment presents equal challenges for both Parliament and citizens. Parliament must improve its information disclosure compliance.
In implementing this commitment, Parliament should focus on the following:
- Develop a clear information disclosure mechanism for all Parliamentary work units and commissions. This includes a clear, standard procedure for all units to follow when producing, developing, and publishing legislative information through the website and Sileg. The mechanism could specify the detailed procedure for how each information is disclosed, the format of documents to be used, a reasonable time gap between the publication of a legislative information and the schedule of subsequent activity relative to that legislation, and the inclusion of a clear narrative of the legislation being drafted; and
- In conjunction with development of the public feedback features on the Sileg application, Parliament can consider establishing a procedure that requires members of Parliament to provide reasoned responses to public comments. Additionally, the application might enable citizens to request feedback on how their opinion was taken into account or incorporated into legislation.
Furthermore, Parliament could also look into opportunities to either improve or integrate the following existing portals to encourage greater citizen participation:
- Parliament’s online public complaints registration and tracking portal (dpr.go.id),
- Parliament’s information service desk (PPID) portal (dpr.go.id), and
- Parliament’s electronic procurement (LPSE) portal (dpr.go.id).
