Jayapura, 21/5 ( Jubi )—Three Papua’s clans are dominating the Papua Legislative Council (DPRP), according to results from the April 9 parliamentary elections.

The clans of Kogoya, Tabuni and Yikwa are dominant not only at the regency level but also at the provincial level.
“Based on the study conducted after the announcement of the election results at the central, provincial, municipality and regency levels, we found the three Papua’s clans are very dominant. They are present in several regencies,” Mega Petrodaz, chairwoman of Papua’s Migrant Group told  tabloidjubi.com on Tuesday (21/5).

The study was held in Jayapura Municipality, the regencies of Jayapura, Mamberamo Tengah, Mamberamo Raya, Lanny Jaya, Puncak, Pegunungan Bintang and Asmat. “Agus Kogoya from Kebangkitan Bangsa Party, Deerd Tabuni from Golongan Karya Party and Elvis Tabuni from Gerindra, Bobirus Yikwa from Democratic Party are those who elected as provincial legislators. Earlier, there was Kenius Kogoya, but he’s not elected this time,” Petrodaz said.

She further said the Kogoya Clan got eight legislature seats in Lanny Jaya, one seat in Mamberamo Tengah, two seats in Jayapura Municipality. Meanwhile, the Tabuni Clan took three legislature seats in Puncak, two seats in Lanny Jaya, two seats in Jayapura Municipality, and one seat in Mamberamo Tengah. The Yikwa Clan got four representatives in Mamberamo Tengah, four seats in Lanny Jaya, one representative in Jayapura Municipality.
“It becomes interested because they were coming from the different parties. This is something extraordinary, and it seems like there’s only happened in Papua. It’s very unique, because in the tight of the competition during the election, these clans could be raised and dominant in the vote,” she said.

Meanwhile, the anthropologist from the Yayasan Lingkungan Hidup Papua, Aser Rumbroisi said this phenomenon presented the dissemination of those clans in Papua. The big community they had is not limited in their origins but also in other regions. They have strong community to assist them winning the vote.
“It’s the thing that not posses by other clans in Papua. Even some of them are big community, but they are so fragile,” Rumbroisi said. (Jubi/Albert/rom)

Jayapura, Jubi – The Vice Chairwoman of the Commission V of the Papua House of Representative for Health and Education Maria Duwitau warned the provincial government not set a goal for Papuan children to be free from rubella and measles only on media.

She further said it is difficult to actualise this goal if the access to health services including the regular immunisation program has not been optimal since it has not reached remote areas yet.

“There is a query that should be answered immediately before the government’s commitment to free a million of children from the threat of rubella and measles,” said Duwitau on Thursday (7/6/2018).

Furthermore, she said if the Papua Provincial Government really committed to this goal, they should optimise the health services including the regular immunisation program by developing the local health facilities.

Meanwhile, the Head of Papua’s Health Office Aloysius Giyai admitted that this province still has a problem with the regular immunisation program. The participation rate is below 80 per cent in most districts, which is under the national target.

“Even in some districts with high participation rate, the Universal Child Immunisation (UCI) rate is also below 80 per cent,” said Giyai. (*)
