A team formulating national legislation on special autonomy status for Bali have formed a special committee within The Indonesian Regional Representatives Council (DPD-RI) targeting for a complete presentation on special territory status for Bali to be ready by November 2013.
Special autonomy status for Bali is quickly acquiring broad-based support on the island, according to the chairman of the team formulating the legislation and a member of the DPD-RI, Wayan Sudirta.
Sudirta told NusaBali that the DPD-RI has solicited and obtained input from a borad sampling of community leaders and academics on the issues of special autonomy for Bali that was used in formulating the proposed legislation.
During the month of October the team will socialize the concept to the people of Bali, allowing final alterations based on public sentiment to be included in any final draft document.
Sudirta said a major motivation in seeking special autonomy status for Bali is a desire to preserve the province's natural environment and local culture. At the same time, he said the legislation would also safeguard the national interests of all Indonesians.
