3 New Provinces Resulting from the Division of the Papua Region to Participate in the 2024 Election

goodmorningpapua.com – A Minister of Home Affairs Tito Karnavian said that three new provinces in Papua as a result of regional divisions would participate in the 2024 General Election. The three provinces are South Papua, Central Papua and Papua Pegunungan.

“They automatically participate, as stated in the law,” said Tito at Taman Mini Indonesia Indah, Jakarta, Sunday, July 17, 2022.

With the presence of the three new provinces, it is necessary to revise Law Number 7 of 2017 concerning Elections. A revision is needed, because the current Election Law was drafted before the division of the Papua region. However, Tito did not explain when the revision would be made. “Those must participate (elections),” he said.

On the other hand, Tito is not sure whether Southwest Papua Province will hold an election. He said the formation of the new province was still being discussed in the DPR. For him, the region division will be carried out this year if the state budget is sufficient.

However, if the budget is insufficient, the division will be implemented in the following year. “Southwest Papua is still a process,” said Tito Karnavian.
