Metrotvnews.com, Jakarta: The Regional Representative Council (DPD) has officially discharged Irman Gusman from speaker position.

"We have to be firm," DPD deputy speaker Farouk Muhammad said after an extraordinary plenary meeting on Wednesday (10/5).

The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) arrested Irman last month. He allegedly received bribe from a sugar importer.

Irman is a senator from West Sumatra. He will be replaced by another senator from Western Indonesia region.

"There are 40 senators from Western Indonesia region," Farouk mentioned.
