Jayapura, Jubi – Septer Manufandu, the former Executive Secretary of Non-Governmental Organization Working Forum of Papua (FOKER LSM Papua), stated stakeholders in Papua need to the right solution to strict the flow of migration into Papua.

So far, he said that Papua is an open region and anyone is free to come to Papua without strict control. Therefore he urges the authority to establish a proper mechanism to control the migration, but respect everyone’s right at the same time.

“In the Special Regulation about Population, it does not prohibit people outside of Papua to enter Papua, but rather to control it. So migrants must have a clear purpose coming to Papua,” Manufandu told Jubi on Friday (9/9/2018).

Meanwhile, a Papua Parliament Member Mustakim said a factor that causes the increase in the percentage of poverty in Papua is the rapid influx of migrants.

“No matter how hard the government tried to reduce the poverty rate in Papua, it becomes difficult to work as people from the outside continue to come,” said Mustakim.

Furthermore, he said a proper solution to regulate the influx of population in Papua is the government should stipulate the provincial regulation (Perdasi) or special regional regulation (Perdasus) on migration. (*)

Jakarta, Jubi – Governor Lukas Enembe said he would evaluate the distributions of Special Autonomy funds allocated for districts and municipality in Papua. Before, the 80 per cent of funds were allocated for districts and municipality, while the remaining 20 per cent was for the provincial government.

“We will recalculate the distribution of autonomy funds and implement what it has been best decided,” the governor told reporters on Wednesday (5/9/2018) in Jakarta.

Regarding the number of funds allocated, he said the provincial government could not yet determine the portions for each district and municipality because it would decide through a thorough study.

“We shouldn’t talk irresponsibly, because it needs the more in-depth study to decide. The distribution of the autonomy funds must not cause problems in the future, and it should be agreed by all regional governments,” he said.

Moreover, the governor said the Papua Provincial Government need to allocate a large portion of its provincial budget for the realization of the National Sports Event 2020. In addition, the handover of high school management from the regional governments to the provincial government also need a lot of funds. (*)

Bali, Jubi – The Ministry of Agrarian Affairs of the Republic of Indonesia launched the Government Regulation on Customary Land on 3-5 September in 2018 in Bali. Three provinces, Bali, Papua and West Papua, are set to become the pilot project of the regulation.

Jayapura Regent Mathius Awoitauw, who also attended the event, said they temporarily hold the conclusion of seminar due to a necessity to formulate a draft regulation regarding the regional customary lands.

Moreover, he said the regulation should be made upon the consultation with the customary landowners themselves.

Both provinces, Papua and West Papua, do not acknowledge the terminology of the land of state but the customary land which is owned by indigenous peoples,” explained the Regent at Jimbaran Perkanti Stadium, Bali, after giving his support to Kenambai Umbai team who competed in Menpora National Series Cup on Wednesday (5/9 / 2018)

Meanwhile, the Coordinator of Jayapura Regional Customary Council (DAS) Daniel Toto said the landowners must be involved in establishing the regulation on the customary land.

It would be a crucial issue if the local government does not involve the customary landowners in drafting a regulation on communal land. Therefore, I agreed with Jayapura Regent who proposed postpone until the consultation with the customary landowners in the respective regions,” he said. (*)
