UNPAK - On February 12, 2020 the Faculty of Law of Pakuan University held a Public Discussion event which was directly attended by Raden Muhammad Mihradi, S.H., M.H. As the Dean of the Faculty, and Mustika Mega Wijaya, S.H., M.H as the moderator and lecturer of the faculty.
This Public Discussion is held with the intention of giving public information what is meant by the Omnibush Law, it is necessary to know that the Omnibush Law is a Law (Law) created to target one major issue that may revoke or amend several Laws at once so that it becomes more simple.
This legal term is currently rife in Indonesia. Because the Indonesian government is preparing an Omnibus Law whose ultimate goal is to encourage national economic growth.
There are three things that are targeted by the government, namely the taxation law, employment creation, and the empowerment of MSMEs.
Omnibus law is also known as an omnibus bill. This concept is often used in countries that adopt a common law system such as the United States in making regulations.
The regulation in this concept is to make a new law to amend several laws at once.
In the process of making, legal experts say that there is no difference with the process of making laws in general. It's just that, the contents expressly revoke or amend several related laws.
Therefore, the purpose of implementing the Omnibush Law by the government is to simplify a similar or similar Act in the hope that the enactment of the Omnibush Law will not cause any overlap between the same or similar Laws governing certain matters. an example of a Law that has been imposed by the Omnibush Law is the Taxation Law and the Employment Creation Act.
The Government's Reasons for Making Omnibus Law
1. Too Much Regulation
The government's reason for making omnibus law is because too many regulations have been made. Not infrequently, one regulation with other regulations overlap and hamper access to public services, as well as ease of doing business.
So that makes the program of accelerating development and improving people's welfare difficult to achieve.
2. Indonesia's Low Regulatory Quality Index
The World Bank notes, Indonesia's score position throughout 1996-2017 has always been minus or below zero. According to the World Bank regulation index scale, a score of 2.5 points indicates the best regulatory quality, while the lowest score is -2.5 points.
Benefits of the Application of Omnibus Law
Secretary of the Coordinating Ministry for Economic Affairs Susiwijono said, there are at least 3 (three) benefits from the application of the Omnibus Law, as follows:
- Eliminating overlaps between laws and regulations.
- Efficiency of the process of amending / revoking laws and regulations.
- Eliminating the sectoral ego contained in various laws and regulations.
