Government expects House to vote on omnibus bill next month: Luhut

first_imgThe government is hoping to attract more investment, especially from overseas, by improving the country’s regulatory scheme through the sweeping omnibus bill. However, the bill has drawn criticism from labor unions and environmental advocacy groups, among other parties, as they believe it jeopardizes labor rights and puts environment protection at risk. Many have also objected to the secretive drafting process of the bill.Jokowi initially expected deliberations to be completed within 100 days of the bill’s submission in February to the House, where 75 percent of lawmakers are members of the government coalition. However, several experts, critics and politicians said the government and the House’s decision to continue deliberations on the controversial bill during the COVID-19 outbreak was insensitive and that postponement would have been better.The government has agreed to delay deliberations on labor-related provisions following strong objections from members of the public, especially workers’ organizations.During a semi-virtual hearing between the House Legislation Body (Baleg) and the government in late May, political factions at the House of Representatives were divided over the title of the bill, with four parties in Jokowi’s ruling coalition demanding a change. Coordinating Maritime Affairs and Investment Minister Luhut Pandjaitan said on Tuesday that the government was expecting the House of Representatives to conclude deliberation on the omnibus bill on job creation next month and that the government expected the bill, if passed, to speed up Indonesia’s investment recovery.“We will complete the bill by early next month,” said Luhut, a close aide to President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo, in an online talk on Tuesday.“If it passes into law, we may be one of the easiest countries for investment, but of course [the investment] must comply with the appropriate regulations.” Parties in the ruling coalition have expressed differences over the bill several times. The Golkar Party, whose chairman is Coordinating Economic Minister Airlangga Hartarto, is considered the main supporter of the bill, while the National Awakening Party (PKB), the political party to which Manpower Minister Ida Fauziyah belongs, often disagrees with the ruling Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P).The PDI-P, whose constituents are generally working class, has been reluctant to pursue the bill from the outset. It was the only party to urge lawmakers not to rush into deliberation, citing public objections to the bill.Luhut, a retired military general, said he remained positive that Indonesia was an attractive country for investment because of its rich natural resources.At the same time, he added, the government was taking steps to develop downstream industries in the extractive sectors to generate as much value as possible from those resources, such as nickel ore.Indonesia recorded Rp 98 trillion (US$6.8 billion) in foreign direct investment realization during the first quarter, down 9.2 percent year-on-year (yoy) as the COVID-19 pandemic put the global economy on hold. Domestic investment grew by nearly 30 percent from the same period last year.Topics :last_img read more

Cricket News Dale Steyn joins Euro Slam T20 league as marquee player

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Injury-prone South African fast bowler Dale Steyn is set to play in the Euro T20 Slam league as he has been signed up as one of the marquee players for the first edition of the tournament beginning August 30. The 36-year-old Steyn, who was initially in South Africa’s World Cup squad but was later forced to pull out due to fitness issues, has joined a growing list of current and former international players for the T20 tournament.”The line-up of Icon & Marquee Players is shaping up: @DaleSteyn62 is joining Imran Tahir, JP Duminy, Chris Lynn, Babar Azam and Luke Ronchi as Marquee player. England skipper Eoin Morgan, Shahid Afridi, Brendon McCullum, Shane Watson and Rashid Khan have been named as Icon players,” Cricket Netherlands said in a Twitter post.”I am very excited about the Euro T20 Slam and being a marquee player… hope to get things going there. I am looking forward to it,” Steyn said in a video message posted by the league organisers.The three-week Euro T20 Slam will have six franchises, two each based in Ireland, Netherlands and Scotland, and the three countries will be jointly hosting the tournament. Shortly after the competition was announced, six cricketers were designated as icon/marquee players by the league — Shahid Afridi, Chris Lynn, Shane Watson, Babar Azam, Brendon McCullum and Luke Ronchi.Several big names have signed up since then, including Eoin Morgan, JP Duminy, Imran Tahir and Rashid Khan. While some of these cricketers are active, Duminy and Tahir have announced that the 2019 World Cup will mark the end of their ODI careers.Steyn, South Africa’s highest Test wicket-taker with 439 scalps from 93 matches, made an international comeback last season after a sustained injury-enforced absence from the game, but had to deal with a fresh injury when he was forced to pull out of the ongoing World Cup without playing a game.Earlier this year, Steyn was picked as a replacement for Nathan Coulter-Nile at Royal Challengers Bangalore for IPL 2019, but had to withdraw after two matches with his shoulder injury flaring up. last_img read more

Football News Barcelona Vs Real Madrid El Clasico Match To Be Played On December 18

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Football News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. Madrid: The rearranged Clasico between Barcelona and Real Madrid will be played on December 18 despite opposition from La Liga, the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) confirmed on Tuesday. Spain’s most prestigious fixture, which was due to take place at Camp Nou on Saturday, was postponed last week because of violent pro-independence protests in Catalonia. La Liga had proposed December 4 or 7 and may decide to appeal. “The decision of the Competition Committee has taken place after analysing in recent days the proposals of both clubs, who were invited to agree a date and decided on December 18,” an RFEF statement read. “It has also analysed a report from the RFEF Competitions Area as well as numerous reports submitted by La Liga, which are not binding. “At today’s meeting, the Committee also analysed the latest reports from both clubs, who maintain their initial proposal to play the match on 18 December.” It means Barcelona, who insisted the original match should have gone ahead this weekend, will face a testing few weeks before Christmas. In December, they are already scheduled to play away at Atletico Madrid, Inter Milan in the Champions League and Real Sociedad, who sit fourth in La Liga. Real Madrid will play away at Club Brugge in the Champions League and then Valencia, just before travelling to Barca.But both clubs swiftly settled on Wednesday, December 18 last week, hours after being instructed to agree a new date by the RFEF. La Liga, who originally proposed the postponement, disagreed, claiming December 18 would clash with fixtures in the Copa del Rey and harm the economic interests of the clubs involved. Common sense “The decision to change the date of the most important La Liga match cannot be left to the decision of the two participating clubs,” La Liga said on Friday, adding that they have a responsibility to “maximise income” from television rights. La Liga initially suggested swapping the two Clasicos, with the first one being played at the Santiago Bernabeu in Madrid, and then proposed the weekend of December 7, when Barcelona and Madrid already have fixtures. Their last proposal was Wednesday, December 4, which comes just after Barca play away at Atletico Madrid.Also Read | Dybala Scores Twice, Juventus Recover To Win Vs Lokomotiv MoscowBarcelona coach Ernesto Valverde said on Tuesday he hoped the two clubs would not be drawn into a political “war” between La Liga and the RFEF, who have clashed on various issues in recent years. “I would like common sense to prevail,” Valverde said “I would like there to be a date settled and for the internal wars between La Liga and the RFEF not to involve us.” Barcelona, who visit Slavia Prague in the Champions League on Wednesday, moved top of La Liga last weekend, one point ahead of Real Madrid. last_img read more

Cross-country looks to take step forward

first_imgThe USC women’s cross-country team experienced an up-and-down season in 2009, and coach Tom Walsh is hoping better luck and a group of new contributors will improve the Women of Troy’s performance on the course.Born to run · Senior Zsofia Erdelyi looks to rebound from injury and an underwhelming 2009 season to lead the Women of Troy in 2010. – Brandon Hui | Daily Trojan “I think we can take a step forward,” Walsh said. “This is a competitive group and they are all looking forward to the 2010 season to try and improve.”That improvement likely hinges on whether USC can stay healthy. Injuries and illness prevented the Women of Troy from running at full strength until the end of the 2009 season and contributed to some disappointing performances at important meets. At the 2009 Pac-10 championships, USC could only muster a ninth-place finish.Most of the runners affected by these setbacks, however, will get a second chance. USC will return several key pieces from its 2009 squad, none more important than senior Zsofia Erdelyi, USC’s highest-place finisher at the NCAA West Regionals race last year.Erdelyi, who qualified for the NCAA championships in 2008, failed to do so last year after running a slower time in the regional meet than the Pac-10 meet. Erdelyi’s inconsistent 2009 season paralleled her team’s struggles, but Walsh believes the problems are a thing of the past.“Zsofia’s season [in 2009] was a fluke,” Walsh said. “She got off to a bit of a slow start because of injuries and in cross-country that can hurt you. The season is so short that if you don’t get on track early, you end up playing catch up.”Among the rest of the returning ranks are sophomore Kathleen Moloney, who had what Walsh called “an outstanding freshman season,” and senior Christine Cortez, who arrived last year as a transfer from Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut, Calif., and emerged as one of USC’s strongest runners.Despite the solid group of returners, it’s the newcomers that provide the most reason for excitement. Redshirt sophomore Shelby Buckley, who was forced to sit out last season because of her intra-conference transfer from UCLA, is expected to make an immediate contribution.“We’re really excited about Shelby,” Walsh said. “She’s got great credentials. We can’t wait to see what she can do for us.”Walsh also anticipates incoming freshmen Jaclyn Walles and Katie DeYoung to make an impact. Walles won the Los Angeles City Championship for Venice High School in her junior year, and DeYoung is a formidable long-distance runner from Serra Catholic in San Juan Capistrano, Calif.USC still faces an uphill climb, however. In terms of overall dominance, the Pac-10 might be the best conference in all of collegiate women’s cross-country. Powerhouses like Oregon, Stanford and Washington annually field national championship contenders, and the rest of the conference produces tough competition year after year.Despite a strong field of opponents, Walsh and his team aren’t backing down. The coach put together what he calls a “challenging, but not overwhelming” schedule that begins Sept. 11 at the UC Irvine Invitational and includes a trip back to the Stanford Invitational the following week. It’s Stanford that Walsh has circled on his calendar as a marquee meet.“I’m really looking forward to it because we did so poorly there last year,” Walsh said. “We need to make up for that. It’s a very important meet for us.”USC will also travel to Cal State Northridge and the Titan Invitational in Fullerton, Calif., before competing in the Pac-10 championships on Oct. 30.last_img read more
