Bali governor Made Pastika has publicly expressed his dismay and disappointment at the obstacles he confronts on every front in an effort to lead Bali to a better future.

Quoted by Kompas.com, Governor Pastika reflected on the third year of his current term as Bali’s chief executive at an encounter with the press on Friday, September 16, 2011, saying: “It’s better I stay quiet and do nothing. I'm not allowed to build schools. I’m not allowed to repair housing for the poor. I’m not allowed to build a hospital. Everything I do is wrong.”

Pastika suspects that protests and disagreement with many of his social development programs are linked to political intrigue. “In fact,” he added, “the next governor’s election is two years away. But the political attacks against me are so intense.”

At the same meeting the governor also complained that there are media in Bali who are being unbalanced, continually trying to force him into a corner. Pastika said he feels there's little need to make new programs if they are only to meet with protest.

During his three years in office Pastika has launched the Bali Mandara programs emphasizing a secure and socially just island society. Included in his program have been efforts to integrate the agricultural sector into the general economy, a socialized medicine program for Bali residents (JKBM) and the repair of housing for the poor.
