October 15, 2010 ( KATAKAMI / THE JAKARTA POST) — The National Police chief Gen. Bambang Hendarso Danuari on Friday lauded that the House of Representatives’ legal commission for declaring Comr. Gen. Timur Pradopo eligible to replace his post.

Bambang praised the House’s Commission III on legal and human rights’ positive stance during Timur’s fit-and-proper test on Thursday.

“Thanks God, the test went well and I really appreciate the Commission members for accepting (Timur’s nomination),” Bambang said Friday morning during his work visit to Manokmari, West Papua, as quoted by Kompas.com.

Bambang said that he welcomed criticism raised by some legislators, saying it was a good input for the betterment of the police institution. He also hoped Timur could perform well in carrying his upcoming tasks.

During the interview, the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) Faction and the National Mandate Party (PAN) demanded the police to stay independent and professional, respect diversity, fight against violence act and settle troubled Bank Century case immediately.

President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono nominated Timur as the sole candidate at the last minute, refusing to select two candidates – general monitoring inspector Comr. Gen. Nanan Sukarna and training and education institutions chief Comr. Gen. Imam Sujarwo – proposed by Bambang.

Bambang will retire from his post by end of this month.
