Jayapura, Jubi – The deputy chairman of the House of Representatives (DPR), Fahri Hamzah said the special autonomy plus bill would be recommended to be included in the National Legislation Program (Prolegnas) next yeae, but there should be open communication.

“We will suggest to have an open communication and discussion and I am ready to facilitate, so the process will be going well, ” Fahri said during a working visit to Papua government last week.

For that, he said all members of the House of Representatives should understand the existing issues in Papua before coming with the decision. “Frankly I would like to invite more of the members to think for a definite solution,” he added.

Previously, governor of Papua, Lukas Enembe said its delay brought a sense of disappointment. “We’ve been struggling for a month in Jakarta with the hope that the bill would be included in the 2015 Prolegnas but it is postponed till next year. (Alexander Loen/ Tina)
