Transportation Minister Budi Karya Sumadi has said his ministry will need to review the content of Monday’s Supreme Court ruling, which ordered the annulment of 14 articles from Transportation Ministerial Regulation No. 26/2017 on ride- hailing apps.
“We will not revoke the regulation yet. In the following weeks we will gather input from experts in transportation, as well as the public, before we decide our next move,” Budi said after attending a discussion in Jakarta on Tuesday.
The ministerial regulation, which became effective on July 1, among others requires ride-hailing partners to shift the ownership of their vehicles to the legal entities -- companies or cooperatives.Read also: Transportation Ministry gives green light to amending ride hailing regulation
Budi said his ministry could not immediately revoke the articles because such a move could disrupt the operation of the ride-hailing apps.
He said the ministry respected the court order, although he emphasized that the government’s regulation was drafted to accommodate the interests of all stakeholders.
The ministry has until until Nov. 1 to revoke the regulation. (dis/bbn)
