Merdeka.com – News about prospective civil servants (CPNS) who resigned was crowded in Indonesia. The State Civil Service Agency (BKN) noted that there were 105 CPNS 2021 people who resigned from their new status as candidates for state servants as of Friday, May 20, 2022.
Salaries and benefits that are not in line with expectations are considered to be one of the reasons for CPNS to resign.
The chairman of Commission II of the DPR RI, Ahmad Doli Kurnia, said that a small salary is a consequence of being a civil servant (PNS) or State Civil Apparatus (ASN). This statement responds to the resignation of hundreds of CPNS in several ministries.
“This is generally accepted and everyone knows that the consequences of being a civil servant are low wages and being placed anywhere,” said Doli.
This is apparently not only done by CPNS, but also Government Employees with Work Agreements (PPPK). Based on data from the State Civil Service Agency (BKN), as many as 442 people in the PPPK category have resigned.
Consisting of 104 people in the first stage of the teacher’s first class teacher training category, they resigned. Then, the Phase II Teacher Training Program was 280 people. In addition, there were 58 non-teacher PPPK.
West Java Province recorded the highest number of resignations for Phase I and Phase II Teacher Training Programs. Meanwhile, East Java Province recorded the highest number of non-teacher PPPK resignations.
Here, merdeka.com will summarize a number of important facts about the phenomenon of people resigning as CPNS.

1. State Loss
The Minister of State Apparatus Empowerment and Bureaucratic Reform (Menpan RB) regrets the resignation of the CPNS Tjahjo Kumolo. Minister Tjahjo said the resignation of hundreds of civil servants who had passed the selection was detrimental to the state.
Because according to him, the government has calculated the number of CPNS needed and the costs, but did not get the human resources (HR) as expected.
“With that fee, the government should get the required ASN. However, because someone resigned, the formation became vacant. The costs incurred were large, but they did not get the human resources,” said Minister Tjahjo.
The government has also issued a large budget to hold the 2021 CPNS recruitment process, but the formation that should be filled is empty.
