Reflection on government politics and optimization of village governance.


On April 25, the President of Indonesia signed Law No. 3 of 2024, which is the second revision of Law No. 6 of 2014 concerning Villages. Several changes have been made ranging from the tenure of village chiefs to rehabilitation funds. However, the Village Law still faces serious challenges, especially in terms of development, corruption, and poverty.

The budget allocation from the national budget for villages since 2015 has surpassed 600 trillion. Instead of improving the welfare of village residents, a portion of these funds has been embezzled, leaving around 10 percent of the rural population in poverty. So, how does the Village Law respond to and address these various issues?
