Apa Yg Dimaksud Gentlemen Agreement

Bila semua pihak konsisten dengan apa yang telah terjadi pada bangsa ini, semua pihak semestinya sudah menghentikan perdebatan tentang keabsahan Pancasila dan semangat Piagam Jakarta. Sampai saat ini belum ada klausul yang mencabut kembali Dekrit yang dikeluarkan Sukarno pada 50 tahun lalu itu. Bahkan, sampai UUD 1945 itu diamendemen sampai empat kali sejak tahun 1999 sampai 2002, klausul Dekrit yang mendasari berlakunya kembali UUD 1945 tidak dipermasalahkan. Hal ini menunjukkan bahwa gentlemen`s agreement tetap berlaku dan harus menjadi landasan dalam membangun negara dan bangsa ini ke depan. Calls for an end to the gentleman`s agreement were complemented by broader calls for reform of democratic governance. The IMF`s unfair voting rights, for example, have long been a bone of contention in structurally weak countries. The recent IMF executive selection process will coincide with the IMF`s 15th General Review of Quotas (see Observer Invierno 2018). Far from being seen as an opportunity to strengthen the Fund`s legitimacy by widely redistributing voting rights, the 15th revision should consolidate structural inequalities and revive calls for governance reform. Civil society organizations around the world have long stressed that the Fund and the Bank continue to undermine their legitimacy by bowing to the gentlemen`s agreement (see Observer Spring 2019).

To replace this archaic and manifestly illegitimate procedure, they called for an open, democratic, performance-oriented and transparent procedure for the choice of the heads of the two institutions. It is important that this process involves the judicious participation of low- and middle-income Member States and that it allows each state, regardless of nationality, to present candidates on an equal footing. The appointment of David Malpass, the U.S. nominee, as World Bank President in April 2019 showed that the Gentleman`s Agreement is alive and well (see Observer Spring 2019). Despite more than 150 civil society organizations and individuals calling on the Board of Directors to deliver on its commitment to an open, transparent and performance-oriented process – reflected in the demands of the Bank`s own human resources federation – Malpass has been named president. The only other candidate proposed was Ziad Hayek, appointed by the Lebanese government, but later withdrew, citing pressure from “other governments”. Di dalam gentlemen`s agreement itu, kata Viddi, disebutkan mengenai upaya SPBM untuk memperjuangkan haknya. SPBM dibolehkan untuk melakukan mogok kerja dan upaya lain yang tidak bertentangan dengan undang-undang. no ketentuan ini cuma ada di gentlemen`s agreement, tidak di PKB. Waktu itu pihak manajemen berdalih kalau masalah mogok kerja dan upaya lain ini kan sudah diatur dalam undang-undang, former tidak perlu dimasukkanke PKB.

Kita waktu itu berprasangka baik saja dan mengikuti kemauan manajemen, Viddi bercerita. Lagarde`s resignation triggered another leadership race, overshadowed by the gentleman`s agreement. The leaders of the IMF and the World Bank were guided by a historic “gentleman`s agreement” between Europe and the United States. What does this agreement mean? And how could it be reformed? Bila kita mengacu pada semangat sejarah Pancasila, secara prinsipil ada beberapa hal yang harus menjadi catatan penting bagi kita sebagai pelanjut amanah keberlangsungan negara tercinta ini.
