Description

What is the public problem that the commitment will address? DPR RI has developed various platforms and applications for parliamentary openness to the public, including the Legislation Information System (SILEG), E-PPID, Rumah Aspirasi, SIMAS PUU and others. However, there are still many people who are not informed yet about this application and have not been informed about how it works and how the application has been developed by the parliament. DPR RI has made numerous efforts to disseminate these products and innovations, but it is not yet received a significant response from the public. For this reason, a new approach is called for to disseminate various innovations in parliamentary openness. This new approach takes the form of developing a more proactive media engagement and developing data driven journalism. This engagement aims not only to introduce parliamentary applications and information but also to provide opportunities for media crews in processing parliamentary information in accordance with journalism's objectives. Journalists and the media have wider outreach to the general public compared to parliament. The media also have various communication assets and strategies that are more creative and capable of attracting people's attention so that the involvement of the parliament with journalists and the media is crucial to promote the various applications and platforms of parliamentary openness to the public. Journalists and media crews have become partners who are consistently present in the parliament. However, their presence only covers the reporting of legislation and members of DPR RI and the implementation of DPR RI functions which have received wide public attention. Not many have covered DPR RI’s innovative product innovations, especially how it works and the services provided to the public. 90 The media have various communication assets and strategies that are more creative and capable of attracting people's attention so that the involvement of the parliament with journalists and the media is needed to promote the various applications and platforms of parliamentary openness to the public.
