National Police Candidate Listyo Sigit Prabowo Steps Senior, Kompolnas: No Problem


Suara.com – The head of the National Police, Benny Mamoto, admitted that he did not have a problem with the appointment of Komnjen Listyo Sigit Prabowo as the sole candidate for National Police Chief, although it is known that Listyo’s appointment overstepped several seniors in the generation before him.

According to Benny, regarding Listyo’s appointment as a candidate for the National Police, who bypassed several generations was not a problem. Moreover, he said, appointments through the previous batch, like Listyo, had already happened when Tito Karnavian was nominated to be the National Police Chief.

“If we learned from Mr. Tito’s experience first, no There is a problem. Show your achievements, performance, abilities, everyone accepts, “said Benny at the DPR Parliament Complex, Monday (18/1/2021).

Benny said that President Joko Widodo’s appointment of Listyo as the only candidate for National Police Chief must have been based on careful consideration. Benny views that there is a positive side to Listyo’s appointment, which has overstepped several generations, namely the question of his future tenure which could be several years from now.

“I am sure the president is considering that. In addition, we see that until the 2024 presidential term, it will be more comfortable until it is finished. Instead of two more years, two more years,” said Benny.

Previously, Kompolnas had provided input to Commission III regarding the sole candidate for Chief of Police, Komjen Listyo Sigit Prabowo. The input was conveyed in a closed meeting.

The Chairperson of Kompolnas Daily, Benny Mamoto, said the input given to Commission III, one of which was related to Listyo’s track record while in the police.

“The first input is a matter of track record. So how about his career from zero to last Kabareskrim? no negative notes, “said Benny at the DPR Parliament Complex, Jakarta, Monday.

In addition to questioning his track record, Benny’s other suggestions at the meeting were related to what achievements Listyo has won.

“What achievements have or have been achieved. Including what are the weaknesses, we have said all of them. That is what will be used as part of the fit and proper test later,” said Benny.

Step over Senior

President Jokowi previously appointed Listyo as the only candidate for National Police Chief. This is known based on the Presidential Letter (Surpres) which was delivered by the Minister of State Secretary Pratikno to the leadership of the DPR RI, on Wednesday (13/1) yesterday.

Previously, several names had appeared as candidates for the National Police Chief. One of them is Gatot, who in fact is Listyo’s senior at the Police Academy (Akpol).

Gatot is known to have graduated from the Police Academy class of 1988. Meanwhile, Listyo was three years under him, namely 1991.

Police observer from the Institute for Security and Strategic Studies (ISESS) Bambang Rukminto also assessed that Listyo would face the same challenges as former National Police Chief General Tito Kanarvian. Where, when Tito served as Chief of Police, he overstepped some of his seniors.

“Learning from the former National Police Chief, Pak Tito Karnavian, who also jumped over several police officers, Listyo will also experience the same challenges,” Bambang told Suara.com, Wednesday (13/1).

According to Bambang, the first challenge Listyo had to go through if he was officially elected as the National Police Chief was to consolidate internally at the Police. As a young generation, Listyo needs to do extra consolidation.

“There are still a lot of seniors, consisting of various carriages and interests, this obviously will require extra energy to consolidate it,” he said.

On the other hand, Bambang saw a number of problems that might arise if Listyo, who still had seven years remaining in office, was officially appointed as the National Police Chief. Especially if Listyo is projected to serve as National Police Chief for four years in Jokowi’s remaining position as president.

“First is the obstruction of the regeneration process within the National Police. Second, it raises the potential for absolute authority in one figure. And we know that absolute power tends to be corrupt,” he concluded.
