Parliamentary (DPRD) Perspective on the Implementation of the Authority to Discuss the Revenue and Expenditure Budget (APBD)

Juajir Sumardi, Aminuddin Ilmar, Naswar ., Achmad ., Maskun .


The understanding of parliamentary members on the scope of their institutional authorities in the budget includes the discussing of the formulation of policies (KUA and PPAS) and the operational planning of the budget including the details of activities and the types of expenditure. This understanding is constructed from the perception of the parliamentary leadership which identifies the parliament’s budgeting functions witht those of the heads of the regions, even in the final stages of the budgeting process which is understood as the exercising of the function to form Perda(s) (non-APB). This understanding is manifested in practice, motivated by the provisions in Law No. 17 of 2003 dan PP No. 16 of 2010 which grants the authority to discuss the budget in detail, the quality of the budget proposed by the local government, the motivation to be re-elected as a member of the parliament by relying on the local budget as a mechanism to finance campaign promises, and efforts to restore the political costs of the concerned member’s candidacy.

Keywords: DPRD’s Authority; APBD.
