E. Java, N. Sulawesi, W. Java have most problematic bylaws
The Jakarta Post
Home Ministry directorate general of regional autonomy Sumarsono has said his ministry has annulled East Java’s many problematic bylaws – the most out of any province – for having hampered investment.
Sumarsono said the ministry had scrapped 102 bylaws in the province aside from 47 and 25 bylaws revoked in North Sulawesi and West Java, respectively.
“From the total 3,143 problematic bylaws being revoked as announced by the President, 67.5 percent were deemed to have obstructed both domestic and foreign investment,” Sumarsono was quoted as saying by the ministry’s official website, kemendagri.go.id on Thursday.
Another 15 percent contravened with central government regulations, while the remainder were annulled because the bylaws were discriminative in nature.
On Monday, President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo announced that his administration had scrapped 3,143 city bylaws out of a total of 3,266 problematic bylaws for contradicting regulations of higher authority, promoting intolerance or deterring investment. (dmr)
