IO, Jakarta – The meeting determin­ing the leadership of the 2019-2024 House of Representatives (Dewan Perwakilan Rakyat – “DPR”) of RI’s Committee for Inter-Parliamentary Cooperation (Badan Kerja Sama Antar Parlemen – “BKSAP”), presid­ed over by Deputy Speaker of DPR RI and Coordinator of Politics and Defense (Koordinator Bidang Politik dan Keamanan – “Korpolkam”) Azis Syamsuddin, has agreed that BK­SAP leadership shall be comprised of 1 Committee Chairman and 4 Committee Deputy Chairmen.

In the meeting held in Nusan­tara III Building, Senayan, Jakarta, on Monday (04/11/2019), DPR RI member from the Great Indone­sia Movement (Gerakan Indonesia Raya) Party Faction (“F-Gerindra”) Fadli Zon was elected Chairman of the BKSAP. The four approved Deputy Chairmen are Charles Ho­noris of the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (Partai Demokra­si Indonesia Perjuangan) Faction (“F-PDIP”), Putu Supadma Rudana of the Democrat Party Faction (“F-Demokrat”), Mardani Ali Sera of the Prosperous Justice Party (Partai Keadilan Sejahtera) Faction (“F-PKS”), and Achmad Hafisz To­hir of the National Mandate Party (Partai Amanat Nasional) Faction (“F-PAN”).

With the unanimous decision, Azis then symbolically handed over the meeting’s gavel to the five leaders of the DPR’s Organs (Alat Kelengkapan Dewan – “AKD”), which are the cutting edge of par­liamentary diplomacy. After the in­auguration, BKSAP Chairman Fadli Zon presided over a Plenary Meeting held to create BKSAP work agenda.

Fadli stated that parliamentary diplomacy is one of DPR RI’s man­dates for supporting the Govern­ment’s foreign policy. Therefore, BK­SAP’s work agenda will be focused on the resolution of regional and international issues in order to fur­ther our national interest. “BKSAP is a tool of parliamentary diplomacy, and part of first-track diplomacy. We must first map out our regional and bilateral challenges, and deter­mine what other issues there may be. Our diplomacy is State diploma­cy. Therefore, we would naturally support national interest,” he said
