Jayapura , 7/4 ( Jubi ) – Papuans have only themselves to blame for the failure of special autonomy, Governor Lukas Enembe said Monday.
“Don’t blame Special Autonomy. If you say Special Autonomy has failed, who is to blame? we Papuans have made it fail as it is known that all important positions, governor, regents and representative council are in the hands of Papuans,” he said.
 Enembe was speaking during a gathering attended by local leaders including regents and the heads of Working Units ( SKPD) in Papua to mark one year in office.
“It’s been a year into my leadership as a governor and Klemen Tinal as a deputy governor in Papua yet we have not done something that gives impacts to communities. Therefore, I invite all leaders to work together to fight poverty, ignorance, backwardness and isolation in Papua. I hope each head of working units will be able to translate these into their programs,” Enembe said.
He stated that this year should focus more on reconciliation, consolidation, regulatory structuring and inventory of problems.
“We keep working to develop good communication among all stakeholders to make Papua better. We have done and it will be part of our journey, ” he stated .
He said he hoped Special Autonomy (Otsus) would be implemented well so there will be change and progress in Papua.
“The most important is our leadership can have a great impact on the people of Papua. We hope that God grants us all leaders, long life and good health to finish the tasks mandated, “ he said. ( Jubi/ Alex/ Tina)

Wed, April 9 2014 00:27 | 251 Views

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Papua provincial district of Yahukimo should postpone vote casting in 35 subdistricts from the earlier schedule of April 9, because ballots had not arrived at the locations, the General Election Commission (KPU) commissioner said.

"Ballot papers cannot be sent to areas in Yahukimo District due to bad weather. Cargo airplane had started flying there, but bad weather had forced the airplane to return to the capital of Yahukimo District," the KPU commissioner, Hadar Nafis Gumay, said here on Tuesday night.

The polling logistics supplies, including the ballots, were flown by using the civilian and military aircraft to the locations. On the way, however, bad weather prevented the airplane from heading to the locations. 

According to Hadar Nafis, the KPU personnel will resume sending the logistics materials for the polling day on the morning of Wednesday, April 9, if the weather was good. 

The casting of votes will be conducted soon after the ballots arrived in the locations, the KPU commissioner added. 

Indonesia will hold a legislative election on Wednesday, April 9, 2014, and a presidential election on July 9, 2014.

Twelve national political parties will participate in the legislative election, namely the National Democratic Party (Nasdem), the Nations Awakening Party (PKB), the Prosperous Justice Party (PKS), the Indonesian Democratic Party Struggle (PDIP), the Golkar Party (Golkar) and the Great Indonesia Movement (Gerindra) 

Also included in the lineup are the Democratic Party (Demokrat), the National Mandate Party (PAN), the United Development Party (PPP), the Peoples Conscience Party (Hanura), the Crescent and Star Party (PBB) and the Indonesian Justice and Unity Party (PKPI). (*)
