Indonesia's Attorney General's Office the worst-performing dept last year

The Attorney General's Office (AGO) was the worst-performing government institution last year, according to a report issued by the Administrative and Bureaucratic Reform Ministry.

In a performance accountability report for last year, the ministry recorded that the AGO scored the lowest among government institutions.

Arsul Sani, a member of House of Representatives Commission III overseeing legal affairs, human rights and security, said the AGO had scored poorly for the past three years, making it important for the government to reform the institution.

"Attorney General [Muhammad Prasetyo] must have a strong commitment to make [major changes]," he said on Tuesday as quoted by

The United Development Party (PPP) politician said the AGO could risk losing public trust if it failed to introduce reforms.

Arsul declined to comment on whether Prasetyo should be axed in the next Cabinet reshuffle, saying that was the prerogative of President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo.

Jokowi has disclosed that there will be another reshuffle, explaining that several ministries had been slow in implementing infrastructure projects.

Administrative and Bureaucratic Reform Minister Yuddy Chrisnandi said leaders of poor performing institutions would not be subjected to the shake-up.

He said Jokowi would take more things into consideration before moving top bureaucrats.
