The legislative function of the People’s Representative Council of the Republic of Indonesia post-amendment of the 1945 Constitution cannot be optimally executed, as can be seen in both quantity and quality aspects of the legislative products produced. Several factors contribute to the fact; first, legislative planning through the National Legislation Program has not been carried out optimally because bills are not supported by conceptional academic studies; second, ineffective debate and discussion regarding bills; third, support from the professional world as a support system of the legislative body that is not yet optimal; fourth, political commitment from parties and factions, apparatus, and members of the People’s Representative Council as the ‘Law Center’. These obstacles have caused the important role of the People’s Representative Council as a state institution cannot be optimally executed in the effort of national legal reform.
