Speak Up! Say What’s on Your Mind

Bali’s Governor Invites Ideas, Suggestions and Public Criticism

(7/8/2012) Bali’s governor Made Mangku Pastika is inviting the public in Bali to have the courage to speak up and make their opinions known, feeling free to make suggestions or criticize the government.

Pastika’s remarks, reported by Kompas.com, were made during his monthly open forum and dialogue held with the government of Klungkung and the local populace on Saturday, July 7, 2012. The governor said the town hall or open house format is intended to provide opportunities to the public to make suggestions, offer ideas and make criticisms of current programs in an open forum unfettered by bureaucracy. The governor has held a monthly open house since his election in August 2008.

At the most recent open house in Klungkung, Pastika reiterated his desire to see Bali operate in a more open, transparent and accountable manner. “Let’s solve Bali’s problems in a relaxed atmosphere,” said Pastika who was accompanied by the regent of Klungkung and leaders of traditional villages.

The Klungkung meeting was also attended by members of the Klungkung House of Representatives (DPRD-Klungkung), provincial officials, regency officials and hundred of regular citizens from across Bali.
