goodmorningpapua.com – A leader of the team for the acceleration of the proposed division of the Southwest Papua Province, Lambert Jitmau, said he was resigning. He returned the decree (SK) as a team leader to the governor of West Papua Province on the reason that he did not receive support.
“I will immediately return the decree as the head of the team to accelerate the division of the Southwest Papua province to the governor of West Papua. Furthermore, the governor’s authority is to appoint which area in the Sorong Raya region as the head of the division team,” he said, Friday (1/4/2022).
He said the struggle for the division of West Papua was the political promise of the governor of West Papua during the campaign five years ago. However, the expansion acceleration team, which received a decree from the governor, did not receive any support at all. “Both financial support and encouragement to coordinate and communicate with the central government, in this case the relevant Ministries, so that the process of the division of new autonomous regions which has been a joint struggle so far can be realized,” said Jitmau.
In addition, the act of rejecting the proposed division of new autonomous regions which is a conspiracy of certain parties is increasingly widespread. He was even the head of the team for accelerating of the division into the target of demonstrations, even being insulted and berated. Meanwhile, the governor and other regional heads in the Sorong Raya region, which are a part of the proposed division of the Southwest Papua Province, were not demonstrated.
Therefore, he will immediately return the decree as the head of the team for accelerating the expansion to the governor so as not to be made fun of by the conspiracy groups against the expansion. “I declare that I support and get ready to carry out any state decisions. I am still part of the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia and that is a fixed price,” said Jitmau.
