MUI appealed to the public, especially students, to respect the mechanism of law and democracy. Demonstrations to express opinions are human rights protected by the constitution. But in its implementation it must continue to heed the values of politeness, order and statutory regulations.
"It must not, in the name of democracy, carry out anarchist actions, disturb public order let alone try to derail the established state agenda. Because the action is essentially a form of denial of the values of law and democracy itself, "he stressed.
In addition, continued Zainut Tauhid Sa'adi, the MUI asked students who wanted to demonstrate to ask the President to issue a Perppu on the KPK Law, preferably through the available constitutional mechanism, both through legislative review and judicial review.
