The DPR selects Insp. Gen. Firli Bahuri, a controversial candidate, to lead the KPK. At the same time, President Joko Widodo approves the KPK law revision. A KPK leader has resigned and two others surrender responsibility to the President.
Despite being a controversial candidate, Insp. Gen. Firli was selected to lead the KPK with the full support of the DPR law commission. Firli is known to be close to party officials.
