President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo has appointed Yogyakarta-based Gadjah Mada University (UGM) legal expert Enny Nurbaningsih as a Constitutional Court justice to replace the court’s first and only female justice, Maria Farida Indrati.

Enny was sworn in at the State Palace on Monday. She is set to take the bench after Maria ends her second and final term on Aug. 13.

Enny was formerly the head of the Law and Human Rights Ministry's National Law Development Agency (BPHN). Enny led the government's team in the deliberation of the recently passed 2018 Terrorism Law.

Enny also headed the government team tasked with formulating the revision of the country's 70-year-old Criminal Code.

Jokowi picked Enny out of two other female candidates proposed by the selection team, including Ni'matul Huda, a law professor at Yogyakarta’s Indonesian Islamic University, and Susi Dwi Harijanti, a senior lecturer at Padjadjaran University in Bandung. (rin)
