Badung Regent Not Interested in Becoming Governor

A.A. Gede Agung Not Interested in Governorís Job, Preferring to Continue Working as Badungís Regent

(9/16/2012) A.A. Gede Agung has reaffirmed that he has no interest in seeking the post of Bali’s governor in elections to be held in early 2013.

Agung told Nusa Bali his preference is to continue to focus on the job of serving as the "bupati" or regent of the Badung regency.

The regent spoke to the press as he was preparing to depart for Harvard University to attend a short course on public sector management.

The regent’s comments have apparently put to rest moves by both the Democratic and Golkar parties to draft Agung as their candidate for the top provincial job in Bali.
