PDIP-Bali: Reclaim, But Not in Our Name

(7/19/2013)

The governing council of the Bali branch of the People’s Democratic Party for Struggle (PDIP – Bali) has adopted an official position in opposition to plans to reclaim portions of an 838 hectare mangrove forest in Benoa Bay by PT Tirta Wahanan Bali.

A letter issued by the Governor has supposedly given that company a 30-year concession with an extension option for an additional 20 years.

PDIP-Bali has issued a formal position statement  that the reclamation of Benoa Bay will have a negative impact on Bali’s desire to foster cultural tourism.

As reported by Beritabali.com, a coordination meeting of the governing council of PDIP-Bali and members of the party’s fraction at the Bali House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali) on Tuesday, July 16, 2013, saw the party adopt a unified stance in opposition to the Governor’s decree permitting the reclamation project. Furthermore, the PDIP-Bali declared the Governor’s decree illegal because it was not in accordance with the recommendations of the legislative council, violates a number of laws and was not preceded by a comprehensive feasibility study.

For all these reasons, PDIP-Bali wants the Governor's decree revoked.

Ketut Tama Tenaya, the chairman of the PDI-P fraction at the DPRD-Bali, told the press. “The conclusion of the meeting was that PDIP is steadfast in rejecting the reclamation plan.”

The meeting attended by PDIP-Bali politicians was held behind closed doors and led by the chairman of the Bali chapter of the party, AA Ngurah Oka Ratmadi. The gathering resulted in three resolutions. First, the party firmly rejects any plans to reclaim portions of Benoa Bay and the Governor’s decree authorizing such projects. Secondly, the PDIP-Bali expressed the desire that Bali’s development should be for and by the people of Bali and not done at the bidding of investors. Thirdly, PDIP-Bali remains committed to cultural tourism in Bali, adding that the proposed reclamation project would have a negative effect of the already over-crowded areas of South Bali.
