Jayapura, Jubi – Papua Governor Lukas Enembe said Aceh does not deserve its status as a special province.

“What do they have? It is not fair. We’ll keep our existing Special Regional Regulation,” Enembe told reporters in Jayapura on Sunday (15/2/2015).

He believed  Papua has done its best  to push for Special Autonomy Law .

“Last year we have done the first phase, now our proposed New Special Autonomy Law (Otsus Plus) should have been registered in the National Legislative Program (Prolegnas) of 2015, but it wasn’t in reality,” he said.


According to him, before the determination of Prolegnas 2015, all fractions at Indonesian Parliament have agreed except a fraction from PDIP that represent the government.

“According to us, the Otsus Plus is the answer of Papua’s issues in line with the Indonesian ideology,” he said. On the other hand, he additionally said, the Central Government want to resolve it through a dialogue.

“I don’t know the concept of the dialogue yet. But I think the Otsus Plus is appropriate for the provincial government while Papuans could interpret it differently. Do not try talking about a dialogue to Papuans because they will have their own interpretations,” said Enembe. (Alexander Loen/rom)
