The Omnibus Law was first echoed during the inauguration of the President of the
Republic of Indonesia to be precise, on October 20, 2019. Omnibus Law is a legal
concept that will simplify a regulation. All the considerations are causedby too many
rules that have stagnated the economic growth experienced by this nation. With the
many regulations, the president felt the need to take steps forward to minimize these
regulations. Acode was created that could back up all rules, namely the presence of the
Omnibus Law Bill, which later the bill became a law called the Omnibus Law.People
who reject and feel uneasy about the presence of the Omnibus Law Bill think that this
bill will only prioritize outside investment, making it a red carpet for foreign investors,
the investment will only be enjoyed by the elite and a handful of people, which does not
lead to job creation which will have an impact on improving people's welfare, making
workers like production machines, loss of minimum wages, reducing overtime working
hours, and many other articles that castrate their own people. With the presence of this
bill, it will make this nation even more backward from democracy. The government and
the DPR should have drafted this law to protect and voice the voices of the people
affected by the regulations, not the other way around. Therefore, the people who are
against it assess that the presence of this bill will legitimize investments that destroy the
environment, ignore the assets of the people and indigenous peoples. The drafting of
this bill was carried out behind closed doors without the participation of civil society
and recycled unconstitutional articles of centralization of authority that hurt the spirit
of reform.
