Jakarta (ANTARA News/Asia Pulse) - The government and the House of Representatives are set to pass a new maritime bill into law calling for an end to the monopoly of state port operators, despite strong opposition from longshoremen.

The bill will end the monopoly enjoyed by PT Pelabuhan Indonesia (Pelindo) I, II, III and IV at 112 major ports in the country. Around 10,000 longshoremen led by the port labor union (SPPI) are set to stage a strike today when the House holds a plenary session on the bill potentially disrupting exports.

Chairman of the Commission V Ahmad Muqowam said in principle both the House and the government had approved the bill and that it would be passed into law today.
