The agenda for the session was only two: listening to the DPR's explanation and asking for the president's statement. His place was in the MK plenary courtroom at 10:00 WIB.

The summons signed by the clerk of Muhidin required all interested parties to be present. "The parties, witnesses and expert witnesses must attend the Constitutional Court invitation," Muhidin said in Jakarta.

The capacity of the courtroom is also limited. The number of parties attending is expected to be no more than five people.

The Court held this plenary session in order to review the lawsuit made by the Indonesian Anti-Corruption Society (MAKI). Together with the 1997 Mega Bintang Foundation, KEMAKI, LP3HI, and LBH PEKA, MAKI filed suit number 24 / PUU-XVII / 2020.

According to MAKI, the granting of legal immunity to the apparatus (cannot be prosecuted both civil and criminal) who deal with Covid-19 is considered to injure the sense of justice of the community. ”They are like authoritarian and undemocratic demigods. As if they are guaranteed not to err and make mistakes, "said MAKI coordinator, Boyamin Saiman.

The rules in the new Perppu are considered to have neglected the principles of the rule of law. "Everything must be based on law, without exception," he explained.
