First, the approval was conveyed by the PDIP Faction through My Esti Wijayanti, a member of the Working Committee for the Draft Law on TPKS. However, Esti made a note that prevention points should be included in the draft.

“In order to speed up this process, PDIP, I, and earlier in consultation with Mr. Kapoxi agreed that the word prevention is not necessary, so the title remains,” said Esti in a meeting at the Parliament Complex, Senayan, Jakarta, Wednesday.

Then it was the turn of the Golkar and Gerindra factions to state that they both agreed with the current title. The Golkar faction considered that the existing title was already in charge of preventing sexual violence.
