The Provincial Government’s plans for the soft opening of the Bali Mandara Hospital on Saturday, October 28, 2017, were delayed when hundreds of members of the Sanur Community wearing traditional staged demonstrations to disrupt the hospital’s inauguration on Saturday, October 28, 2017.

The State News Agency Antara said many of the protestors carried signs proclaiming “Sanur Citizens on the March Refusing to be Duped” from Mertasari Beach to the Hospital located on the Bypass in Sanur.

The local citizens were seeking the fulfillment of alleged promises that 10% of all employment positions at the new international standard hospital would be given to members of the Sanur Community.

I Wayan Maryiana Wandira, the deputy chairman of the Denpasar House of Representatives (DPRD-Denpasar) and a resident of Sanur, told the press that the Provincial Government of Bali must make a written commitment supporting the 10% employment quota.

Of the 500 employees recruited to work at the new hospital, only 7 come from the Sanur community, with 4 of that number “newcomers” to Sanur as opposed to ancestral members of the community. The leadership of the Sanur Development Foundation is demanding at least 50 jobs be reserved for Sanur residents.

In an effort to stave off further protests, the province is now offering 23 positions at the hospital to Sanur residents. According the NusaBali, on Wednesday, October 25, 2017, the Governor said that 23 remaining vacancies would be reserved for people from Sanur ranging from Doctors to administrators to laundry workers, providing qualified candidates in Sanur can be found.

The Governor of Bali, meanwhile, denies that any promise of a quota for employment at the new hospital was every made to Sanur residents, holding fast to the principle that the best people for each position would guide hiring.

The demonstrations were timed by protestors to coincide and disrupt the opening ceremony for the new hospital. As a result, a long traffic jam was created stretching from the Jalan Hayum Wuruk intersection to an area near the entrance to the Bali Toll Road at Benoa.

Hundreds of uniformed police were positioned in front of the hotel as a security measure.
