Jayapura , 22/4 ( Jubi ) – The future of a special bylaw on local parties and 14 legislative seats for Indigenous Papuans remains up in the air as the Papua Legislative Council ( DPRP) said that the legislation has not been drafted.
” As I know, the current DPRP would not draft the bill on Special Bylaw on political parties and 14 legislative seats for Indigenous Papuans yet since there is no agenda,” secretary to Commission A of DPRP, Julius Miagoni confirmed via cell phone on Tuesday ( 22/4).
The next legislative council may put it on the agenda, he said.
Even now, there are still some drafts that have not been passed by DPRP yet.
The draft bylaw is still awaiting approval from Governor Lukas Enembe because it needs to be synchronized.
Earlier, in mid-February, chairman of Commission A overseeing Government , Law , Human rights, Ruben Magay said that draft Special Bylaw on local political and 14 legislative seats would be passed in the near future. ( Jubi / Arjuna/ Tina )
