Description

What is the public problem that the commitment will address? DPR RI already has various channels of public participation both online such as Public Participation in Legislative Views (SIMAS PUU), Aspiration Houses, and Public Complaints, as well as offline such as Public Hearings (RDPU), audiences and direct visits. RDPU is a formal public consultation mechanism provided by DPR RI by inviting speakers from community organisations, academics or practitioners. However, in various channels, especially offline, active participation from the public is still limited and engagement between parliament and the community has been far from ideal. Moreover, DPR RI does not yet have a regular forum where requests are centered on the public. Access to public participation also remains limited since not all requests for hearings can be fulfilled and activities such as visits and public hearings are only limited to invitations determined by the commission. Therefore, additional space and opportunity for more dialogbased participation is needed outside the existing mechanisms that can reach various interest groups in society with specific and in-depth themes. As a legislative institution that represents the people and their interests, DPR RI needs to have a multi-party forum that focuses on the substance of policies and legislation and is held continuously and periodically. This forum can also be used by DPR RI to give attention to crucial issues that exist in society, as well as an opportunity to build a stronger relationship with various stakeholders in the society. 87 What is the commitment? Forming a multi-stakeholder forum between DPR RI and the community and for regular policy dialog. Milestone: 1. Formulation of standards for the implementation of multi-stakeholder forums which include: a. Thematic priority category b. Mechanism for implementing multistakeholder forums 2. Public participationmanagement assessment How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem? This commitment aims to build a wider space for dialog between DPR RI and the public that has been very limited and complex to date. It is expected that a consistent and sustainable substantive forum can be a good starting platform for building a two-way dialog between DPR RI and the public. Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values? This commitment will seek to open a wider space for public participation to discuss various aspects of issues and substance in parliament. Through periodic multi-stakeholder forums, the public can not only convey their input and aspirations, the parliament will also include and respond to various issues presented by the community, as a form of accountability of DPR RI to the public. Therefore, this commitment includes the value of participation and accountability. Conformity with the Parliament Work Plan 1. DPR RI Strategic Plan for 2020-2024 2. This formation is in line with the DPR RI’s plan to proclaim a “Modern Parliament,” namely a parliament that is representative, transparent and uses information technology. 3.
