(3/24/2013)

With Bali’s next governor’s race set to take place island-wide on May 15, 2013, the next man to sit as the island’s chief executive, depending on the results of that poll, will be either the 10th or 9th person to hold that office, depending on whether or not incumbent Made Mangku Pastika is re-elected.

With information provided by Beritabali.com and other sources, here’s the chronology of Bali’s governors dating from the island’s official recognition as a province of Bali in 1950.

Anak Agung Bagus Sutedja – He served as the first period as governor from 1950-1958, returning for a second term 1958-1965.

In addition to being the first governor of the Provice, Sutedja who was a son of the last King of Jembrana (Anak Agung Bagus Negara). He was appointed governor by Indonesia’s first president Sukarno. Sutedja’s term of office came to an end a few months after the failed Gestapu Coup of September 1965.

As an interesting footnote, Sutedja disappeared mysteriously on July 29, 1966 while in Jakarta, believed to have been the victim of a political kidnapping.

I Gusti Bagus Oka – Served a short one-year interim term as Bali's second governor from 1958-1959.

I Gusti Putu Martha – Served from 1965-1967 as Bali’s fourth governor

Soekarmen – Bali’s fifth governor from 1967-1978. Soekarmen was a retired Brigadier General and the first non-Balinese and non-Hindu to serve as governor, working two successive terms of office.

Prior to becoming Bali’s governor, Soekarman served as the military commander at the Denpasar Military Command.

Professor Dr. Ida Bagus Mantra – A much loved very popular governor, Mantra labored tirelessly on behalf of the Balinese people and their culture, Mantra is credited with rules requiring Balinese architectural style in building projects and with the creation of the Bali Arts Festival.

Mantra served as Bali’s sixth governor for two terms from 1978 – 1988, and as Indonesia’s Ambassador to India before his death in 1995.

Professor Dr. Ida Bagoes Oka – Bali’s seventh governor from 1988-1993. Oka also served as Minister of Population and Head of the National Family Planning Board during the presidency of Jusuf Habibie.

In 2001 Oka was found guilty of corruption while in office, fined Rp. 2.4 billion and sentenced to one year in prison.

Drs. Dewa Made Beratha  – the eighth governor of Bali served two consecutive terms from 1998 - 2008.

I Made Mangku Pastika was Bali’s first chief executive elected by popular vote in 2008. He is currently seeking a second term in the election to be held May 15, 2013.

Pastika retired as a Brigadier General in the Indonesian Police Force and was instrumental in capturing the Bali Bombers who killed 202 people in Bali nightspots in 2003, He was honored by TIME Magazine (Asia) as a “Man of the Year” in 2002.

Pastika speaks six languages and graduated at the top of his class at the National Police Academy in 1974.

Pastika is the ninth person to serve as Governor of Bali
