As reported by Balidiscovery.com, [See: Made Pastika Named PDI-P's Man to Run for Bali Governor] the race for Bali's Governorships is taking shape with the formal candidacy by the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) of Police General I Made Mangku Pastika and Anak Agung Puspayoga as their candidates for Bali's next Governor and Vice-Governor.

That race further intensified in the first week of February when Gde Wiratha, the outspoken head of the Bali Chapter of the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce (KADIN), announced his candidacy for the Golkar Party. Wiratha, who owns a number of tourism enterprises in Bali, is the brother of Kadek Wiranatha - the founder of the now-defunct Air Paradise. Gde Wiratha is an ardent advocate for legalized casinos in Bali.

Wiratha's filing to become Golkar's gubernatorial candidate brings to eight the number seeking to represent that party in the coming elections. Also filing to run under the Golkar party banner were: Made Oka Karyana, Chairman of Bali's Workers Party (Party Buruh Bali); Jro Gde Karang TS, a local businessman who owns a travel agency and a hotel; Cok Budi Suryawan, Chairman of Bali's Golkar party; Professor I Gusti Bagus Wijaya Kusuma, a local academic; I Gusti Djestawana, Chairman of Bali's Young Democratic Nationalist's Party (Angkatan Muda Nationalis Demokrat); Sang Nyoman Suwisma, the Chief Director of Indonesian Educational Television (TPI); and Anak Agung Gde Antara, the former Assistant Chief of Police for Bali.

A spokesman for Golkar's Bali election committee, Sugawa Kory, told Bisnis Indonesia that once all those desiring to run as Golkar's candidate for the governor of Bali have formally filed their candidacy, each will be asked to formally submit their political platform before the Executive Council of the party in Bali.
