Chairman of the Association of Communications and Informatics Office of the Province of Indonesia, who is also Head of Communications and Informatics Department of East Java Province, Eddy Santoso, regretted the attitude of the Directorate General of Infomatic Application (APTIKA) Ministry of Communications and Informatics that did not respond to East Java Governor's Letter No. 551.21 / 465 / 113.4 / 2018 on the implementation of Permenhub 108 / 2017 in East Java.
The Governor's Letter relates to frequent rallies by special online transport drivers addressed to the Department of Transportation and the Office of Communications and Information Technology of East Java. In the letter proposed, that in addition to authorize the role of the Department of Transportation, should the central government also give a role to the Department of Communications and Informatics in the region.
Eddy Santoso said that the neglect was done by the Director General of APTIKA Kemkominfo through the holding of a follow-up meeting related to Ps 67 paragraph (2) Permenhub No 108/2017 on the Transportation of People with Public Vehicles Not In Route, especially related to digital dashboard application. In a meeting to be held on Monday (12/2) tomorrow, the Central Government does not involve the Regional Office of Communications and Informatics.
"We are concerned because it does not respond to the letter of Governor of East Java specially point 5 b, which is proposed there is involvement of the Office of Communications and Information Technology in handling the online transport. Because based on Law 23/2014, clearly stated that the Department of Communications and Informatics carry out the mandate of carrying out affairs related to APTIKA field, "said Eddy through a press release on Sunday (11/2).
Ditatakanya, this is different from that done by the Director General of Land Transport Ministry of Transport some time ago. Director General of Hubdar held a meeting to discuss online transportation by inviting the Department of Transportation and the Provincial Communications and Information Agency of Indonesia.
According to Eddy, if the Department of Communications and Informatics in an area that often receives an online transport demo is not involved, then there is something that is not right in the implementation of governance made Kemkominfo. Therefore, Eddy will discuss more seriously related to this condition with all members of the Indonesian Diskominfo Association in the near future.
