Burying the Hatchet in Bali

PDIP Party Announces its Intent to End Political Opposition to Bali Governor Pastika


Bali News: Burying the Hatchet in Bali

(9/23/2013)

The Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDIP), who fought a hotly contested battle for the governorship of Bali against Made Mangku Pastika, is now seeking a rapprochement with the Island’s newly re-elected chief executive.

During a plenary session of the Bali House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali) on Friday, September 20, 2013, a spokesman for the PDIP-Bali announced that their faction in the House would abandon its opposition role during Pastika’s final term of office.

I Nyoman Parta of the PDIP Party said: “The law on local government clearly states the local government is the governor and the council. In this light, it’s not appropriate if the council assumes the role of the opposition.”

The announcement came as a political surprise from a party that has in the past seen fit to oppose Governor Pastika at every turn, reflecting a very bitter estrangement between PDIP’s chairwoman Megawati Soekarnoputri and the Governor.

The move by the PDIP bodes well for future political cooperation between the DPRD and the Governor for the coming five years. PDIP holds 24 seats (44%) of the 55 seats in the Bali House of Representatives (DPRD).

Indications are that the newly discovered spirit of cooperation between the Governor and the PDIP will see an end to the party’s opposition to Pastika’s popular Bali Mandara Program that provides government-paid medical care for Bali residents and unrelenting vehement attacks by the PDIP on Pastika stemming from now-abandoned Benoa Bay reclamation project.

Pastika welcomed the truce with the PDIP and the opportunities  he says it presents for all stakeholders to work together on behalf of the Balinese people.
