(2/9/2014)

The State News Agency Antara reports that the Bali Police have issued rules across Bali disallowing the creation and parading of any Ogoh-Ogoh floats on March 30, 2014 that discredit any political party or specific candidate.

The parades will cover the entire expanse of the island on March 30, 2014, heralding in the New Year and day of traditional silence “Nyepi” that comes on the following day.

Addressing the traditional parades populated with giant floats carried aloft by village men carry large papier mâché effigies, Bali’s chief of police General Albertus Julius Benny Mokalu said: “The ogoh-ogoh parades will continue as in the past, but none can be used to discredit any individual or political party. That is forbidden.”

The move is seen as necessary to keep a lid on potential outbreaks of civil unrest in the period leading up to the legislative elections scheduled to take place on April 9, 2014.
