Jayapura, Jubi – The Student, Youth and People Movement (Gempar) of Papua accused the provincial government and the legislative body after they failed to have Otsus Plus (Special Autonomy Plus Law) included in the National Legislative Program 2015.
Gempar Secretary General Samuel Womsiwor said Gempar who consistently rejected the idea of Otsus Plus was pleased to find out the bill wasn’t included in the Prolegnas 2015 because it still needs some revisions.
“We are very grateful to hear that news. We hope it would never accepted and applied in Papua because eleven recommendation of the Papua’s People Assembly in the conference and evaluation on Special Autonomy Law at Sahid Jayapura Hotel in 2014 concluded the Special Autonomy Law is failed. Therefore instead of enforcing the certain ambitions, the Papua Provincial Government should better improving itself,” he told Jubi in Waena on Tuesday (17/2/2015).
Meanwhile, Gempar member Alfa Rohorohmana firmly said Governor Lukas Enembe, DPRP Chairman Yunus Wonda and Papua’s People Assembly Chairman Matius Murid should stop bluffing the central government.
“The governor said he had no idea where to put his nationalism if the Otsus was failed. Then, yesterday he apologized to the people of Papua because the Otsus Plus was failed in the Prolegnas. Did Papuans ask for it?” Rohrohmana said.
Due to this failure, the Papua Legislative Council Chairman Yunus Wonda further said the people of Papuans want a supreme dialogue with the Central Government. What is it? The parliament should respect a dialogue initiative that encouraged for years by Papua Peace Network,” he said.
Meanwhile, another member Ismail said the Papua People’s Assembly Chairman Matius Murib called to stop the administration in Papua following this failure. But the fact is the administration is still running.
“Where is the evidence? Don’t just bluff to the Central Government. Prove it. Don’t just talk nonsense. The Papua People’s Assembly is still running. No strike. Mr. Murib must prove it starting with the People’s Assembly,” he said.
Earlier, after the failure of Otsus Plus obtaining recognition in Proglenas 2015, the Papua Governor apologized to the people. He declared not going to Jakarta although he got the president’s call. Meanwhile the Papua Legislative Council Chairman Yunus Wonda said Papuans want a supreme dialogue and Matius Murib bluff due to this failure the administration in Papua Province must stop running. But the fact is the administration is still running. (Arnold Belau/Rom)
