Why Are Yogyakarta Called Special Regions?

Yogyakarta is called a special region because until now it is still in the form of a kingdom. Since when did Yogyakarta have a nickname as Yogyakarta Special Region?

Precisely since August 15, 1950, the Law of the Republic of Indonesia confirmed that Yogyakarta was a special region on a par with the provinces. This privilege is illustrated in the law through the special status of Yogyakarta with a special system of regional autonomy.

The existence of the Sultanate of Yogyakarta and the Pakualaman Duchy since ancient times, became the forerunner to the emergence of the features. Talks about establishing Yogyakarta as a special region actually began before Indonesia’s independence. However, it cannot easily embed special words, it requires a formulation of a law to make it legal before the law.

To establish the position of Yogyakarta requires a very long time. Even during the RUU session, there were differences of opinion between BP KNID and the two rulers in Yogyakarta. BP KNID wants Yogyakarta to become an ordinary area like the general area. Whereas the two monarch rulers in Yogyakarta want Yogyakarta to become a special region. Until finally, the results of the session formed a bill totaling 10 articles and were approved by the two leaders of the monarchy.
Furthermore, the two kings issued a proclamation as a form of agreement with the BP DIY DPR on May 18, 1946. Through this notice, the name of the Special Region of Yogyakarta was pinned and became a sign of the union of the two monarchies in Yogyakarta.

The Law Regulates the Right to Have Special Regional Autonomy
As quoted from the official website of the Financial and Development Supervisory Agency in an article titled ‘History of Yogyakarta Privileges’, it is stated that Indonesia with the capital city of Yogyakarta is only a state of the United Republic of Indonesia (RIS) which has its position in Jakarta until August 17, 1950. After that it regulated in a statute.

“Formally formed by Law No. 3/1950 amended by Law No. 19 of 1950. Both laws were enacted starting 15 August 1950 with PP No. 31 of 1950. Law 3/1950 on the Establishment of the Special Region of Yogyakarta is very short (only 7 articles and an annex to the list of autonomy authorities) “wrote on the website.

The two laws were then enacted on August 15, 1950 with Government Regulation No. 31 of 1950, although the date of its adoption was on March 3, 1950. There are only 7 articles in it. Each governs the matter of the name of the privilege, the capital city, the people’s representative council, as well as household matters.

Of these laws are regulated by the region, the capital city, the number of DPRD members, the types of authority, and transitional rules. In Law Number 3/1950, it is clearly stated that Yogyakarta is a special province equivalent to the province but not a province. The Special Region of Yogyakarta is not a constitutional kingdom.

The naming of a special region is equivalent to a province and is actually similar to a province but has different legal and political consequences. For example in the case of regional head and deputy regional head.
