Constitutional Court of the Republic of Indonesia
- The Constitutional Court of the Republic of Indonesia was established as a consequence of the third amendment to the Constitution of Indonesia, which was ratified by the People’s consultative Assembly on 9 November 2001. The Constitutional Court is a product of reform, especially in the institutional aspects of state in Indonesia. The existence of this institution has resulted in a new freshness in the political, democratic, and national life of Indonesia. The existence of the Constitutional Court serves as a fresh wind for each citizen, especially in protecting their basic rights against every action taken by the state that they deem to be inconsistent with the Constitution. The Constitutional Court is a court of first and final instance in that justices have the authority to hold trials at both the first instance and appellate stages. The final decisions issued by the Court are deemed to be binding and may pertain to the following: (1) the constitutional validity of Acts; (2) disputes between state institutions; (3) the dissolution of political parties; (4) disputes related to the results of general elections; and (5) allegations of treason, corruption, bribery, and other serious criminal offences against the President and Vice-President. Therefore, this paper aims to analyze and statutes of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Indonesia.
