Indigenous People Appreciate the Plan for the Division of Provinces in Papua – The government stated its plan to expand Papua Province into six administrative areas. The six provinces proposed by the central government include Southwest Papua, West Papua, Central Papua, Central Mountains, South Papua, and Papua Tabi Saireri.

In response to this, the Deputy Minister of Public Works and Public Housing (PUPR) who is also a native Papuan, John Wempi Wetipo, said that the division of provinces in Papua could have a good impact.

“Therefore, I hope that whatever divison is carried out, at least there is a large umbrella to oversee all development processes that are taking place in Papua,” said John.

The big umbrella in question is the urgency of the central government to form an authority body to coordinate all policies implemented in Papua, including those related to expansion.

Meanwhile, a special staff to the President, Billy Mambrasar, stated that it was important to expand or form new provinces and districts in Papua. Furthermore, the Papuan son detailed a number of reasons, such as historical, cultural, economic and government factors as the basis for his opinion.

“I am in a position, firstly, the geographical condition of Papua is very wide. Second, the complexity of the geographical conditions. And third, with a note that what has happened before, we fix it,” said Billy.

Billy also has opinion that it should involve the younger generation of Papua in the process of division of this province. Never do the devision process anymore, intended to improve the fate of the Papuan people, turns out to be monopolized by old Papuan figures.

As previously reported, support for the division of Papua province also came from the people of South Papua. They gave their appreciation and support for the discourse on the division of the South Papua Province (PPS).

Efforts to expand PPS are expected to be able to cut the bureaucracy, so that it can improve services to the community. The South Papua Province Devision Plan (PPS) was well received by the people in Asmat and its surroundings.
