(4/12/2004)

Reflecting the general situation in the nation as a whole, the first round of national elections for parliamentary posts went very smoothly on Monday, April 5, 2004.

In a multi-party teleconference between all the provincial police chiefs with the national police commander, General Drs. D'ai Bachtiar, held on Tuesday, April 6, 2004, the general security situation one day after national parliamentary elections was discussed and assessed.

Reports from the Police's regional command structure confirmed that, as reported in the international media, the first round of national elections in Indonesia went off smoothly without any significant disturbance.

While praising the security support role his police officers played in the election process, General Bachtiar said that the lion's share of the credit must go to the Indonesian people who have demonstrated a growing understanding of the democratic process.

The Situation in Bali

In reporting to Jakarta, Bali's Chief of Police, Inspector General I Made Mangku Pastika, confirmed that with the exception of minor incidents in Badung (Denpasar) and Singaraja, the Bali election process went well. The two incidents recorded by the police both involved personal altercations between competing candidates that were quickly handled by officers on assignment at polling centers.

Bali Police were pleased that tourism flows to the Island seemed unaffected by the electoral process. Arrivals via Bali's airport remained at high levels and many tourists were reported to be visiting polling areas on April 5 to view Indonesians exercising their democratic right.
