Jayapura, 14/7 (Jubi) – Hundreds of temporary employees held a protest in front of the Papua Regional Civil Service Agency (BKD) to question their promotions as civil servants.
“We have come to BKD asking them to accommodate 491 temporary employees to be registered as civil servants as per 2013 recruitment. Because we have brought this issue to the Ministry of Administrative and Bureaucratic Reform, we asked them to give the authorities for recruitment to the provincial government,” protest leader Eko Fonataba told reporters on Monday (11/7).
He said hundreds of temporary employees who joined the protest have been working in some government’s departments.
“There are among us who have been working for 5 to 10 years, many of them already old. We ask for the government’s special policy and hope the BKD could take the positive stages to accommodate our request,” he said.
But when asked whether those employees have registered in K1 or K2 formation by BKD, he said he was not sure about it.
The Head of BKD Papua Province, Charles Kambuaya, said the protesters were the temporary employees who were recommended by each office department head.
“We are not able to accommodated in the data base. Because in accordance to the provision of the Minister of Administrative and Bureaucratic Reform, K2 staffs are those who have worked since 2005, while the protesters worked after 2005, therefore they could not register in the database,” he said.
However, he added, the provincial government has tried to accommodate them in the recruitment of Civil Servant for this current year without any condition and with the consideration of Special Autonomy. But the decision is on the hand of the Minister.
“We have did our efforts, even we sent our representatives to meet the minister. The representatives did not only come from the DKP office, but also the representative of the temporary employee and Papua Parliament, because the governor has no authority on the recruitment of civil servant, bu the Minister of Administrative and Bureaucratic Reform,” he said.
