Detiktoday.com – Deputy Chairman of the Regional Representative Council of West Java Province, PDI-P Faction, Ineu Purwadewi Sundari said that the recess activity this time was slightly different from the recess activities that had been carried out previously.
“The 3rd recess is not as usual. This recess is slightly different from the previous recess because it is still in the Covid-19 pandemic, although large-scale social restrictions have been lifted, “she told Tagar when met at the West Java Regional House of Representatives, Bandung, Wednesday, July 1, 2020.
If the previous recess members of the council will invite the public to capture aspirations further Ineu explained, this recess was precisely the members of the council who directly met with the community one by one, groups or by region in collecting aspirations, complaints and so forth. This is done in order to prevent crowds and prevent the risk of exposure to Covid-19 or the new Covid-19 cluster.
“Even though the PSBB has been revoked and is preparing to Adapt New Habits, 119 councilors must avoid all risks exposed by Covid-19, one of which is a crowd,” she explained.
In addition to direct blusukan, the recess carried out must also implement strict health protocols for both the 119 members of the West Java Regional People’s Representative Council, the communities they met include assistants and other parties who assisted with the recess.
“We still have to apply health protocols during recess, such as mandatory use of masks, social discipline and physical distancing, hand washing and other health protocols,” Ineu explained.
In addition to capturing the aspirations of the people in the electoral district, 119 members of the West Java Regional House of Representatives were also encouraged to take part in socializing the importance of discipline in implementing health protocols, especially ahead of new normal which is often misunderstood by the public. So that automatically 119 members of the West Java Regional People’s Representative Council must also provide examples of discipline in applying health protocols during recess.
“Why does it have to be a socialization as well? If socialization relies on village officials or other government elements, its scope is very limited. Well 119 members of the council are expected to socialize, correcting the wrong perspective about the new normal. Given, many interpreted normal life again without applying health protocols. This must be straightened out, “said Ineu.
Even though the provisions in recess must be at 8 points added by Ineu, he also hoped that 119 members of the West Java Regional People’s Representative Council would recess more than 8 points. Considering the targets (community groups) in capturing the aspirations of many, as well as the aspirations that are expected to enter a variety, especially after large-scale social restrictions are lifted.
“Although the provisions are 8 points, I am sure 119 councilors will be more than 8 points. We can stop (recess) in sub-districts, shops, shops to ensure Covid-19 has been well handled, or ensure public services are in accordance with health protocols and so on, “said Ineu.
