What Is Amendment?

Amendment is the term for an official amendment to an official document or record, especially to improve it. Changes made can include adding or deleting erroneous or incorrect records. Amendments generally refer to changes in the laws of a country (constitutional). Constitutional is a basic political and legal principle that covers structure, procedure, and authority / rights and obligations. Therefore, the constitutional is very related to the amendment because it aims to improve the important notes / documents of a country to be better.

In the world of business and finance, amendments often occur in cooperation agreement documents. This is usually necessary to adjust the previous agreement with the current conditions. The amendment process is generally also listed in the previous document and requires approval from the parties involved to make it a new legal document.

Amendment Example

There are many examples of amendments that have already taken place in Indonesia, especially in terms of constitutional matters. For example, the role of the President as an executive body of the State. Many interpreted the executive power as not reflecting a democratic State, so that amendments were made by increasing the power of legislative institutions such as the DPR, DPD, and Judiciary institutions such as the MPR and the Supreme Court which had equal positions and provided mutual supervision.

Purpose of Amendments

The purpose of the amendment is to make improvements or improve some provisions and rules in an official document. As stated in the structure of the Indonesian state, so the amendment is expected to achieve national goals and the welfare of the Indonesian people and protect human rights in accordance with civilization.

Reason for Amendment

The reason for the amendment is because there is an overly dominant power between the parties involved in the agreement, so it is necessary to change or refine the agreement document itself for the benefit of the parties involved.
