To Serve and Protect

Bali Governor Reminds Civil Servants to Remain Neutral During Coming Legislative Elections

(12/6/2013) Bali’s governor Made Mangku Pastika reminded the province's civil servants to safeguard their neutrality during the coming 2014 legislative elections in Bali.

As reported by the State News Agency Antara, Pastika said at the 42nd anniversary of the Indonesian Civil Service (Korpri) on Friday, December 6, 2013: “The members of the civil service corps must be steadfast in their dedication to the public and the Country. They cannot take sides; they must remain neutral.”

The governor said that in order that the 2014 elections can select the very best representatives, the neutrality of Korpri is of the utmost importance.

Reflecting on the May 2013 governor’s race in Bali, Pastika said he hope government employees would maintain their neutrality.

Reminding Bali’s civil servants that they are required as Korpri members to always remain just and neutral in the performance of their duties, Pastika also read prepared comments from Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono echoing the call for political neutrality and execution of responsibilities free of favor or influence from political interests.

Using the occasion of the anniversary of the civil service corps, Pastika also reminded government workers to continually enhance their professionalism in order that the public can experience the benefits of a reformed bureaucracy in Indonesia.

That bureaucracy, said Pastika, must be clean, effective, transparent, and accountable while undertaking the building an anti-corruption culture.

The mass anniversary assembly of civil servants usually held at the Margarana Puputan Field in Denpasar was moved to the assembly hall (Wantilan) of the Bali House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali) due to heaving rainfall.
