  • H. Salmon


One aspect of the legal political construction of the administration of regional government after the issuance of Law Number 23 of 2014 related to the essential authority of government. From a constitutional aspect, this becomes important because it is related to the parameters of the division of authority between government structures as intended in the constitution (the 1945 Constitution of the Republic of Indonesia). In the concept of state administration law, which starts with the constitutional formulation as referred to in the provisions of Article 18, Article 18A and Article 18B of the 1945 Constitution of the Republic of Indonesia, it naturally raises issues regarding the form and concept of deconcentration adopted in Law Number 23 of 2014 which tends to have a centralistic character. The problem occurs since the reduction of the deconcentration construction whether it is part of the open legal policy or part of strengthening the existence of presidential power as referred to in the formulation of the provisions of Article 4 of the 1945 Constitution of the Republic of Indonesia.
By using the legislative approach and conceptual approach, an analysis of the legal issues put forward in this paper will further examine and analyze the essential nature of government authority in the administration of government according to Law Number 23 of 2014.
