The Provisional Constitution of the Republic of Indonesia

Excerpt

This book has already been published three times, and with this fourth edition improvements or additional notes have been placed below the articles of the Constitution.

In improving the notes and explanations, I have given attention to the comments concerning this book by Mr. F. R. Böhtlingk in the magazine Indonesia , V (1951-1952), pp 384. Also I have referred to the official discussions on the formation of the Unitary State at the Eighth Session of the Working Body of the Central National Committee in Jogjakarta during August 1950.

Legislative situations in various fields and problems concerning some important articles which have arisen since the promulgation of the Provisional Constitution are also mentioned.

Considerable legislation required by the Provisional Constitution for the implementation of various affairs has not yet been enacted. In the meantime, the Indonesian people already hopefully expect as soon as possible the holding of the general election, in order that the Constituent Assembly can soon hold meetings for the drafting of a definite Constitution.

I also hope that this book can contribute to some extent toward more understanding on the part of the public of the content and purpose of the Provisional Constitution, especially for those who in connection with their daily activities must refer to the articles of the Constitution.

R. Supomo Djakarta, January 1954
