The National Insight Test At The KPK Is Considered To Be Removing Employees Who Have Different Political Views With The Government

JAKARTA - Executive Director of Amnesty International Indonesia, Usman Hamid, assessed the National Insight Test (TWK) which was followed by the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) employees as an effort to get rid of those who had different views from the government.

He conveyed this in response to the TWK assessment which contained many odd questions and caused 75 employees to be declared not passing the selection so that they were threatened with being fired.

"This test is clearly an attempt to get rid of KPK employees who are considered to have different political views from the government," Usman said in a discussion broadcast online on YouTube, Friday, May 7.

He alluded to the question material in TWK, both written and interview, which are small questions that have the potential to cause division. In fact, this kind of test should be able to arouse a sense of nationality above the struggle for justice.

There were a number of questions in the test he read, such as the opinion of employees about Rizieq Shihab and the disbandment of the banned organization, the Islamic Defenders Front (FPI), the dissolution of the Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia (HTI) organization, to government policies and which policies were not approved.

"This is not a question that arouses a sense of nationality on the basis of the struggle for justice, the struggle for justice," he said.

"Therefore, I say that the national insight manifested in the test is not the national insight inherited by the founders of the nation, but rather the national insight that comes from small, dwarf minds, and those who have been hiding behind national cloaks to cover up the crimes committed," added Usman. .

Therefore, if 75 employees who do not qualify are dismissed, then TWK is considered a form of weakening the KPK. "And this is the latest scandal in an effort to weaken the eradication of corruption, betray reforms, and will further set back the quality of democracy which is already low," he said.

Previously reported, Chairman of the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) Employee Office Yudi Purnomo spoke up about the odd questions during the National Insight Test (TWK) interview. Yudi admitted that he was asked whether he, as a Muslim, would like to say happy holidays to people of other religions.

This then surprised him. Because, he is often done giving happy holidays to people of other religions and has become a common thing.

"I was surprised when I had a question about whether I would like to wish people of other faiths a happy holiday," said Yudi in his statement to reporters, Friday, May 7.
