Description

What is the public problem that the commitment will address? Information disclosure is a significant prerequisite for participatory and responsible management of public resources. Currently, legal guarantees related to Information Disclosure are available, namely Law No. 14 of 2008 concerning the Transparency of Public Information (Central Information Commission Law). The Central Information Commission Law is a legal guarantee to encourage information disclosure in state administration. The government's efforts that have provided legal guarantees for information disclosure should be appreciated. However, legal guarantees alone are not sufficient. Other prerequisites are needed for the law to be effective in supporting information disclosure. One of them is the availability of access for the public to get public information. To note, many cases faced by the community are often related to access to information causing the public to go through a mechanism for requesting information, 40 objections, and information disputes (the stages of mediation, adjudication, to a lawsuit in court).
