Merauke, 4/2 (Jubi) – A Merauke Regency councillor has criticized sub-district heads who often do not show up for work to serve the public.

“They don’t even supervise their staffs well because the bosses are rarely in the office,” said the Chairman of Commission A of the People’s Representative Council of Merauke District, Dominikus Ulukyanan, during a commission hearing on the 2014 Regional Budgetary Planning Year on Tuesday (4/2).
He said the appreciated sub-district heads that have worked very hard despite inadequate funds and facilities.
“We believe and trust that this land and its ancestors will reward the struggle of these sub-district heads and their families. Also it would be a blessing for them in the future,” he said.
Dominikus also raised the issue of staff inefficiency in Merauke. He said the regency is lagging far behind other regencies in Papua, newly-created ones such as Mappi, Asmat,  and Boven Digoel, in delivering public services. He urged the Regional Civil Service Agency (BKD) to immediately review and verify staffing data in every government office, paying particular attention to non-permanent staff members.
There have been reports that some non-permanent employees have not showed up for work for months, or even       years, but yet they passed the K1 database. (What is K1?).
The Head of Semangga District, Recky Samkakai, said he agreed with the assessment of the the council.
“Yes, of course, we must carry out the duties that have been entrusted to us as well as possible, especially in terms of providing good services to the public. If we often meet people in villages, they will also feel  motivated to work,” he said. (Jubi/Ans/rom)
