An expert on constitutional law from Andalas University, Feri Amsari, criticized the attitude of the Minister of BUMN, Erick Thohir, who registered himself as a candidate for General Chair of the All-Indonesian Association (PSSI).
According to him, Erick must immediately step down as the number one person in the Ministry of State-Owned Enterprises (BUMN). In his criticism, Feri said, if a minister must prioritize professionalism in work. If he takes another job, the minister in question cannot concentrate on his work.
“Being the chairman of PSSI is the same as he is not focused and serious about carrying out the duties of the ministry for which he is responsible,” said Feri when confirmed, Sunday (15/1/2023).
Therefore, continued Ferry, if Erick wants to focus on becoming the General Chair of PSSI, he should step down as Minister of BUMN. The goal is that the Ministry of BUMN continues to function properly and is not disturbed by Erick regarding preparations to become the General Chair of PSSI or after the election.

“He must be orderly so that he can think about quitting his current position, so that the ministry can run well and not have multiple positions,” Ferry said.

Even so, Feri admits that there is no regulation that prohibits ministers from holding multiple positions in other organizational bodies. However, said Fery, this was an ethical violation that state officials had to comply with.
“This is at a certain point a call for ethics, yes, it is not appropriate for a BUMN minister to run for the chairmanship of PSSI. Therefore, this is an extraordinary ethical violation,” he said.
“Not to mention the professionalism of a minister in President Joko Widodo’s cabinet,” he added.
For information, Erick Thohir has confirmed that he will nominate himself as a candidate for the General Chair of PSSI for the 2023-2027 period. He has also registered at the PSSI office at Gelora Bung Karno, Jakarta on Sunday (15/1/2023).
