Five factions at the House of Representatives declared their support for the 2013 revised state budget (APBN-P) bill, while three rejected and one took an unclear stance.

Kontan.co.id <http://kontan.co.id/> reported that the Democratic Party, the Golkar Party, the National Awakening Party (PKB), the United Development Party (PPP) and the National Mandate Party (PAN) all supported the bill.

The opposing factions were the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P), the People's Conscience Party (Hanura) and the Prosperous JusticeParty (PKS).

The PKS was the only government coalition party to reject the bill.

The Greater Indonesian Movement Party (Gerindra) took an unclear stance.

The party'€™s spokesperson, Djemi Francis, said although the party respected the government's authority to determine the fuel price rate it rejected the clause that gave the government the authority to adjust the price rate.
