Jayapura, 29/6 (Jubi) – Minister of State Apparatus and Bureaucratic Reform ( MenPan-RB) Azwar Abubakar  delivered the results of Civil Servant candidates (CPNS) tests  for Papua province to Governor Lukas Enembe  on Thursday (26/6).

“I submitted the result to the governor. We also discussed the next formation. Let each regional head administer it, ” Abubakar told reporters after a closed-door meeting with the governor and regents.

He said that the test results have been validated.
“The result is official,” he said.

When asked why the test result took a long time to process, he said the government had to follow the proper procedure.

He then added that in the future, the ministry will prepare applicants to take computer tests and undergo training.
“All will be calculated, because the regent / mayor filed the required formation and job analysis. Later, at the end of July the candidates will be ready to take online tests,” he said.

The results will be announced simultaneously throughout the province of Papua.

Puncak Jaya regency secretary Yuni Wonda said,the results of the general  and K2 formations have been received.
“The announcement date will be made simultaneously in all regencies. Therefore, we need to coordinate with relevant agencies and also the security forces,” she said.

In a meeting, there is an agreement to do simultaneous announcement.
“It is clear that the result do not accommodate all of our proposals yet this is a decision and we have to accept, “she added.

“Particularly in Puncak Jaya regency, we do not know yet whether our proposals are accommodated or not, because all the results are still in the envelope. However, in Puncak Jaya regency, there are approximately 600 people registered for K2 formation and only 30 percent accepted which are about 171 people,” she said.

“There are 1,900 people who took the test in Puncak Jaya and only 226 elected for General and K2 formations,” said Yuni. (Jubi / Alex/Tina)

Jayapura, Jubi – Dozens of indigenous women who are selling local products at the traditional market ‘Pasar Mama-Mama Papua’ blocked the road in front of the market on Friday afternoon (8/10/2018) to protest the National Electricity Company (PLN) for cutting off the electricity at the market for several hours due to late payment for the last four months amounted to Rp 60 million.

The coordinator for the Solidarity for indigenous Papuan traders (Solpap) Franky Warer said it just happened spontaneously because of their disappointment. “The electricity was cut off at around 11.00 Papua time when I was still at home, then someone called me. I then went to the market and called the mayor,” Warer told Jubi by phone on Friday evening (08/10/18).

After that, he said, the Municipal Government agreed to contact the PLN and the electricity in the market turned normal at around 18:00 Papua time.

Meanwhile, the Papuan legislator John NR Gobai commented that relevant parties should pay attention to this matter for not outsizing the traders. “This market is managed under the Trade and Industry Office of Jayapura Municipal Government. So the agency needs to find a solution immediately,” he said. (*)

Jayapura, Jubi – The Secretary for the Government, Politics, Law and Human Rights Commission of the Papua House of Representatives Mathea Mamoyao, who is also a Kamoro native, said ‘one percent fund’, 1% of Freeport’s gross revenues go to the local tribes, does not guarantee the sustainable future of those tribes.

“I don’t know whether this compensation is still there or not. I don’t want certain people took advantages on it, while people are still living under the poverty,” she told Jubi on Wednesday (18/7/2018).

Further, she said what she wants is a guarantee for the Kamoro tribe to live in a better condition in the future. But the fact is the education and health services in the Kamoro region is still poor. “For all the times, I’ll keep talking about it, because as a native, I don’t want the young generation of my tribe not to survive in the future,” she said.

Meanwhile, the board of Meepago Customary Council John NR Gobai said indigenous peoples as the tenure landowners collect the promise of the Indonesian Government on the bargain involved Freeport, the Central Government and the landowners on 4 September 2017.

“At that time, the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources Ignatius Jonan agreed to accommodate the request of Amungme tribe asking Freeport to give a reimbursement of 1% fund which they received as the Corporate Social Responsibly funds into larger value shares,” he said. (*)

GIDI church missionaries, pastor and Kopkedat Papua provide public health services in Okmakot Village, Seradala Sub-district, Yahukimo District. – Jubi/Agus Pabika

Jayapura, Jubi – Chairman of Humanitarian Care Community for Remote Areas Papua (Kopkedat) Yan Akobiarek states despite education, public health services in Papua’s remote areas are still an issue.

Although the provincial health office has provided services to remote areas through several health programs such as Satgas Kaki Telanjang, Save Korowai and Nusantara Sehat, these programs have not well implemented.

“I think sending teams to remote areas is a good idea, but I get the impression that some team members only come for vacation, to work less and get more rest,” said Akobiarek told Jubi by phone on Tuesday (10/7/2018). For instance, he pointed out the team of Satgas Kaki Telanjang who are supposed to provide health service to villagers in Korowai. After the Ied al-Ftir break, their members are still not returning to their duty station.

Meanwhile, Maria Duwitau, the Vice Chairman of the Commission V on education and health of the Papuan House of Representative said doing health services in Papua, in particularly remote areas, is always connecting with a commitment. “No matter how greater of the offer, but without willingness and commitment, I think it’s useless,” Duwitau told Jubi not long ago.
