07-12-2010 14:16 BJT

JAKARTA, July 12 (Xinhua) -- Speaker of Indonesian parliament Marzuki Ali said Monday his institution will prioritize legislative tasks as it is scheduled to finish 70 bills this year whereas it has only completed five bills so far.

Speaking at a parliamentary plenary session, Marzuki said that the parliament will put focus on two new bills submitted by government.

"We have a bill that should be approved about agreement between the Republic of Indonesia and the Federation of Russia about military technical cooperation and a bill of memorandum of understanding between the Republic of Indonesia and Brunei Kingdom about cooperation in defense sector. Both bills will be handled by the Commission I," he said.

According to Marzuki, the parliamentary performance has been in a negative spotlight as they have been considered not at its maximum effort in addressing legislative issues.

"Therefore, we are agreed to make a breakthrough in addressing the issues, namely by re-allocating schedule in parliament's sessions and by tightening deadlines, among others," he said.

He said that the parliament did not only target quantity resulted in line with priorities, but also maintain quality so that the bills that will become laws would benefit people, the country and the nation.
