Jayapura, Jubi – Papua Governor Lukas Enembe asked to the Papuan people to respect his decision about those who are elected as the councilors of the Papua Legislative Council through 14 seats policy of the Papua Special Autonomy Law.

 
“The authority of the governor is clear. They might be able to charge, but we have the list of names and convincing reference. I hope we can deal with this,” said Enembe in Jayapura on Tuesday (11/10/2016) in responding the statement made by the Papua Customary Community Forum who file a charge to the State Court related to the appointment of the candidates of 14 seats.

He emphasized this appointment is the authority of the governor referring to the Special Regional Regulation about 14 seats appointment of the Special Autonomy. “I have named it, but the selection committee annulled it. Then we revise it once again. At that time I was in the hospital, prayed and made a decision on the 14 seats,” he said.

He explained, earlier the selection committee has appointed 41 names and handed to him for recommendation. Then, the committee didn’t follow up his recommendation; in fact the recommended names were annulled before submitted to the Papua People’s Assembly for assessing the authenticity of Papuans. However, due to the expiration of the contract of the Papua People’s Assembly, he withdrew the list and gave a new recommendation.

Meanwhile, the Chairman of the Papua Legislative Council Yunus Wonda said referring to the Special Regional Regulation on 14 seats, it has not mentioned about the number of men or women, but the indigenous Papuans only. “The Special Regional Regulation does not mention about the percentage of the number of men and women, but more about the indigenous Papuans or the customary people who are selected in 14 seats,” he said.

Jayapura, Jubi – Central West Papua National Committee (KNPB) held a limited discussion to support FKLNS (Organization of the Liberation Struggle of the Kanaky Tribe in New Caledonia) which has been well received by the Melanesian Spearhead Group (MSG) to conduct a referendum in November 2018.

The First Chairman of Central KNPB Agus Kosay said it’s time for Kanaky to get self-determination from French colonialism.

“Kanaky must declare their self-determination. If Kanaky gets their independence, it would be able to give their support to West Papua because we share the same situation, which lives under the colonialism,” he said on Wednesday (08/12/2018) in Jayapura.

Meanwhile a member of Gempar (Papuan Youth and Student Movement) Nelius Wenda said as a nation oppressed by Indonesia, West Papua fully supports the referendum agenda of New Caledonia.

“Kanaky must determine their destiny. It must be far better than being under the French colonialism. In the future we Papuans are just like Kanaky,” he said. (*)
