ASSESSING GOVERNMENT POLICY IN COMPARATIVE APPROACH: THE USE OF DISCRETION IN HANDLING COVID-19 CASE IN INDONESIA
The use of discretionary authority by the Government and regional governments in tackling the Covid-19 pandemic as described above is vulnerable to deviations from authority by the government. The research is a normative law research, using normative case studies in the form of legal behavior products, by reviewing laws. The results show that discretion is an important instrument that enables the government to respond quickly and effectively to changing situations. Discretion is used in implementing public health policies, budget allocations, and affirmative policies related to pandemic response and national economic recovery. This ideal concept is formulated by considering comparative studies and the characteristics of Indonesian law. It is important to balance the need for local flexibility and adaptability with the need for coordination, transparency and accountability in the administration of governance systems.
