Metrotvnews.com, Jakarta: As many as 10 thousand security personnel will secure a mass rally in front of the Parliament Building Complex in Senayan, Central Jakarta on Tuesday, October 24, 2017.

"We will prepare security measures. We will deploy 10 thousand police and military officers," the Central Jakarta Police chied Senior Commissioner Suyudi Aro Seto told Metrotvnews.

"We will use peaceful approaches. We will distribute drinks and sweets," the Central Jakarta Police leader said. 

The mass rally is held to protest against the Government in Lieu of Law (Perppu) No. 2 of 2017 on Mass Organizations. It is expected to attract thousands of protesters. 

The Perppu can be used to prevent anti-Pancasila mass organizations. It has been used to disband Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia (HTI).

The House of Representatives will hold a plenary session to discuss the controversial Perppu today. It will decide whether to pass the controversial Perppu into law.
