Abstract

This paper aims to analyze the existing conditions of the Information Commission (KI) from the perspective of the institution and authority, which will lead to a reconception regarding the arrangement of the Information Commission as a response to the development of digitalization of public information in Indonesia. Digitalization of information is changing information from analog to digital format and the development of the digitalization of information has positively and negatively impacted Indonesia. As a state auxiliary organ in charge of public information, the Information Commission needs to conduct a self-evaluation that will produce a progressive and responsive Information Commission. The results of this study indicate that the Information Commission is institutionally not independent, and in terms of authority, there is an overlapping authority in resolving public information disputes with the administrative court. There is a dualism in the process of resolving public information disputes. A reconception is also needed regarding selecting and recruiting candidates for the Information Commission Commissioner. It is time for the Information Commission to be filled with young people with excellent capabilities. The Information Commission also needs to be filled with a progressive and responsive commissioner.
