Governor of Papua Province, Lukas Enembe (Jubi)

Jayapura, 3/ 4 ( Jubi ) – Papua Provincial Government is determined to strengthen the Papuan People’s Assembly (MRP) to allow them to monitor the use of autonomy funds after passage of a autonomy bill by national parliament.
“If it is passed, the authority of the MRP to oversee the use of special autonomy fund will be regulated. For that reason, we continue to strive for this bill to be passed soon,” Papuan Governor Lukas Enembe said in Jayapura on Thursday ( 3/4 ).
“We will strengthen the MRP by preparing the draft and will discuss it with the Papua Legislative Council. So far, MRP has no legal basis  to supervise the performance of the government,” he explained.
He added, the authority should be governed by rules that have validity nationally .
” So far, MRP only deals with issues of culture, religion and women and  it must be empowered by law. Our target is the regulation should be passed by the Papua Council before August 17, 2014,” he concluded . ( Jubi / Alex/ Tina )

5) TRANSMIGRATION PROGRAM NO LONGER IMPELMENTED IN PAPUA
Jayapura, 1/3 ( Jubi ) – The Department of Labor and Demography in Papua province said that there will be no transmigration program in Indonesia ‘s easternmost region.
” The other provincial governments in Indonesia still consider implementing the transmigration program, but not for the Province of Papua,” department head Yan Piet Rawar said in Jayapura on Thursday (3/4) .
To control the population in Papua, the provincial government already has a provincial regulation (Perdasi) No. 11 of 2013. “The population of Papua should reach 20 million before a new transmigration program can be implemented, ” he explained.
When asked about the impact of the influx of people from outside Papua, he acknowledged the number increased every year but was under control.
“We’ve socialized Perdasi No. 11 of 2013 to the regencies and cities in Papua as people from outside who came to Papua is growing each year. One of the reasons is employment opportunities, ” he said.
He hopes that this regulation can be implemented well if there is cooperation and coordination between the regencies and cities in Papua.
” Yes, the people who enter Papua can not be easily recorded and hopefully the implementation of e-ID card can collect accurate population data, ” he said.
While, the Governor of Papua Lukas Enembe said, currently Papuans do not need new provinces but more welfare in all sectors.
“So far, about 60 percent of Papuans are not ready for new provinces. If we force the split, it will create new problems,” said Luke. ( Jubi / Alex/ Tina )
