The "DPR/MPR building" houses the legislative, which has been a bicameral parliament since 2004. Commissioned by former President Suharto, it was intended to house the Conference of New Emerging Forces (CONEFO), a rival organisation of the UN that would comprise non-aligned countries. The building complex's main assembly hall seats 1700 people. During the events that eventually led to Suharto's fall, the parliament building was occupied by 80.000 students.
