President Joko Widodo appears to be reconsidering his earlier plan to pull back a bill already approved by the parliament. The bill limits the authority of the respected Corruption Eradication Commission. Government corruption is seen by many people to be a serious problem. The Commission was one of the few bodies able to do something to address it. Members of parliament fearful of being investigated by the Commission sought to limit its powers. Prior to election, Mr. Widodo said he would work to repeal this bill. However, it appears he may be changing his mind.

Pray that he will stand up for anti-corruption measures (The Bible, 2 Corinthians 8:21).
