A total of 33 members of the DPRD West Sumatra (Boast) officially proposed the use of the right of inquiry following a polemic donation request letter signed by the Governor of West Sumatra, Mahyeldi Ansarullah. Then, what is the reason for the proposers to apply for the right of inquiry?
“First, of course, for the good, orderly, clean, and free implementation of the West Sumatra Provincial government in accordance with the laws and regulations,” said the spokesperson for the proposer, Irwan Afriadi, to reporters, Tuesday (14/9/2021).

According to him, it also reminds parties who are suspected of trying to undermine and influence regional heads in issuing policies that are not in accordance with the rules and regulations which in turn have the potential to benefit certain parties or groups.
The third reason is for the emergence of legal and political certainty over the governor’s alleged policies which are considered disturbing and have the potential to injure public trust.

Namely 10 people from the Democratic Faction, 14 people from the Gerindra Faction, 6 people from the PDIP-PKB Faction, and 3 people from the NasDem Party.
