The Supreme Court has annulled the Regulation of the Minister of Transportation of the Republic of Indonesia Number 26 Year 2017 on the Implementation of Transport of People with Public Vehicles Not in the Route. There are 14 points from the Permenhub which is annulled by MA.

In its verdict, the Supreme Court assessed Permenhub Number 26 Year 2017 to be contradictory to the higher legislation, namely Law Number 20 of 2008 on Micro Small and Medium Enterprises and Law No. 22 of 2009 on Traffic and Road Transportation. In addition, the Supreme Court views these rules against the principles of fair economic democracy and agreements between service users and special leasing business.

Implementing Duties of the Directorate General of Land Transport Ministry of Transportation, Hindro Surahmat, said the replacement of the 14 articles disallowed to this day has not existed. He said, there has been no meeting point of the successor rule because it is still in discussion with the stakeholders. Hindro said, for that old rule is still valid for the next three months while waiting for the birth of new rules.

“I think they already know (online taxi entrepreneurs). I do not want them left out and so on. This input is our hope not only from the old transportation, but also the online transportation about what we have to do, “he said on the sidelines of Focus Group Discussion Searching for New Taxi Online Regulation at Hotel Alila, Pecenongan, Central Jakarta, Tuesday 5 September 2017.

According to him, the discussion should be held in order to immediately get a better new rules again, because otherwise there could be a void of rules. He said, if the rules are revoked all the taxis online have no basis for operation, and can be dealt with.

As is known in the 14 sections of Permenhub 26 of 2017 this regulates the matter of taxi fares online, the operational area, the quota of the number of online taxi vehicles, the taximony, the domicile of motor vehicles, and the Type Test Registration Certificate (SRUT). However, for the latest tariff plans and quotas, Hindro is still reluctant to comment.

After this will be there again in Makassar (discussion), we have to dig some information in some places. That is, we get information from outside to be comprehensive, “he explained.
