2) Papua Police Identify Potential Threats Toward Regional Election

TEMPO.COSemarang - Papua Police Chief Insp. Gen. Boy Rafli Amar said that his institution has already mapped out conflict potential regions ahead of the 2018 Regional Head Elections. Police have also mapped out public figures that can potentially spark conflicts.
“Other than regional mapping, we have also mapped out certain public figures,” said Boy at the Semarang Police Academy on Tuesday, October 10. Police are focusing on the preparation for conflict prevention.
The regional elections in Papua will be held simultaneously on June 27, in seven cities and districts.
The preparation for the Papuan regional elections has been under police spotlight since the National Police Chief General Tito Karnavian includes Papua and West Java as conflict-prone regions during the elections.
Despite prioritizing a much more persuasive approach towards conflict solving, police have stated that they will handle suspects of public unrest firmly. Boy said that there were many cases of mass mobilization in the 2017 regional elections, therefore, he hopes that it will not happen again in the 2018 regional election.  ARKHELAUS WISNU TRIYOGO

The upcoming 2018 gubernatorial election in Papua has been estimated to cost Rp 1.031 trillion (US$76.3 million). It is three time more than the funds needed to organize the previous Papua election in 2014 that cost about Rp 300 billion.
“We have streamlined the initial proposed budget of Rp 1.2 trillion during discussions involving the Home Ministry,” the head of the General Elections Commission (KPU) Papua, Adam Arisoy, said in Jayapura on Tuesday.
He said the budget had skyrocketed mainly because of the establishment of new districts and villages.
“New districts and villages have been established in almost all 29 regencies [in Papua]. In Yalimo regency, for instance, there were only about 100 villages during the 2014 race, but now the regency has no less than 300,” he said.
The new districts and villages would result in an increase in the number of polling stations and polling committees, among others.

At the moment, KPU Papua has recorded 3,336,144 eligible voters who would cast votes at 9,169 polling stations.
As many as 171 provinces, regencies, and cities across Indonesia will hold regional elections, next year. (bbs)
