Jayapura, Jubi – Many civil servants in Papua province have unclear tasks, so control over the employees is needed, said Papua Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs Elysa Auri in Jayapura on Tuesday (21/6/2016).

Of 7000 civil servants of provincial government, only 5000 employees have clear tasks, while the rest have unclear roles.

“2000 employees are not having clear job descriptions, they just come and sit, sign their attendance and go home. So, in line of organization restructuring, we are temporarily not accepting the transfer of civil servants from regional and municipal goverments,” said Auri while leading the morning gathering at Otonom Kotaraja square.

To materialize it, said Auri, he formed a team which its task to improve the discipline among employees while doing their job at their offices.  “To each Head Office, I also expect them to direct their staffs. If the employees were absent, it is fine to question the echelon III or IV, or come to the staffs’ house to ask their problem if necessary, so it could motivate the staffs to come to the office to do their tasks,” he said.

He said Papua Province is now getting the audit report without exception from BPK-RI (Audit Board of the Republic of Indonesia), while those who work hard for this award are the employees, but in reality the personnel managerial is still need to be improved.

“I also coordinated with the finance body, it is related to some employees that already passed away but their salaries are still being paid. It indicates that our system is still weak, so the correction is needed,” said Auri. He added in the future he targeted the improvement of personnel managerial would be completed in 2017. Therefore the system would be run more effective, efficient and economically to provide better government service and good development to the community. Earlier, Papua Provincial Government was talking about the handover of employees and assets from regional government that is planning to be done within next year. It is in accordance to the Law No. 24/2014 about Regional Government.

It’s written in the article 404 of Law 24/2014 that the handover of personnel, facilities and infrastructures, funding and documents as a consequence of task division between the central, provincial, municipal and regional governments that regulated in the law must no longer than two years since the legal product has been legitimated.

“Today we had a meeting with the provincial offices directed by Assistant Secretary for Government Affairs to discuss about the responsibility and handover of personnel from regency to province, province to regency or province to the central,” said the Head of Finance and Regional Asset Management of Papua Province Benyamin Arisoy.

Noken system in Papua’s elections is still debated

Jayapura, Jubi – The Constitutional Court (MK) has acknowledged and endorsed the Noken System in the elections in accordance with the Decree of the Constitutional Court Number: 47-48 / PHPU.A-VI / 2009 and the article 18B paragraph (2) of the 1945 Constitution.

However, this system is still considered to cause some conflicts among local communities because it forces many candidates to think and work hard to get sympathy from people living in such areas applied to this system.
Although the Papua General Election Commission (KPU) has issued the technical guidelines in 2013 regulating the use of noken instead of the ballot box in the election, Metusalak Ifandi, the Chairman of Papua Election Supervisory Body (Bawaslu), admits the noken system is still a potential source of conflicts in the local election in Papua.
“The implementation in the field is totally different from the technical guidelines. This should be addressed by KPU. Of course, there needs a coordination between KPU and Bawaslu regarding the technical implementation including the regulations because we only refer to their guidelines,” he answered Jubi on Tuesday (9/18/2018) in Jayapura.
Multi-interpretation and the need of review
The noken system is considered valid if the noken is hung on the wood located in the polling station. Voters must come to the location and should not be represented by others to put the ballot into the noken. After the voting, the ballots must be counted on location but still need to be punched (to authorize), not like the voting process in other regions where the noken system is not applied, voters punched the ballot at the same time they put it into the ballot box. That’s why, according to Papua Bawaslu, the noken system often leads to misinterpretation.
“According to the Constitutional Court, the use of the noken system to substitute the ballot box is to respect the tradition of the local community,” said Metusalak.
Meanwhile, Theodorus Kossay, the Chairman of KPU Papua, said KPU Papua considers three aspects towards the application of the noken system, namely reviewing this system with academics, establishing the standard operating procedures and stimulating the use of this system.
“These three aspects were carried out to give weight to the implementation of the noken system and provide education to the people living in 14 districts that use the noken system,” he said. (*)
