Author(s): Henry Indraguna, Hartiwiningsih, I Gusti Ayu K.R.H

The behavior of officials is a role model for society; therefore they have to give a good example. Currently, there are several officials who do not carry out their oath of office, even though when they made his oath, he has promised before the public and God and they should carry out what has been pledged. Even though there is no administrative, civil and criminal sanctions against public officials who do not carry out their oath of office does not mean that they can violate them freely, because all of them are part of official political ethics. It is necessary to set a criminal sanction formula to eliminate public officials from violating or failing to carry out the oath of office. It is because the official's actions are included into public deception, the criminal sanction of 5 (five) year’s imprisonment is required so that when the official is proven guilty and punished by the court he cannot return to be a public official.
