goodmorningpapua.com – The struggle for the establishment of a New Autonomous Region (DOB) for Central Papua Province, whose capital is Timika, has not only been carried out in recent years. This struggle has been going on for more than 2 decades.
A number of figures who were supported by the Mimika Regency Government continued to struggle despite the moratorium from the Central Government due to the dynamics that were developing at that time.
Not to mention that the process of division in Papua Province must obtain the approval of the Papuan People’s Assembly (MRP) in accordance with the mandate of Law 21 of 2001 concerning Special Autonomy (Otsus) for the Papua Province which has then been changed to Law Number 2 of 2021.
This has resulted in the progress of the struggle for the expansion of the Central Papua Province as up and down.
Mimika Regency Government under the leadership of Dr. Eltinus Omaleng, SE.,MH then began to reactivate the struggle for the formation of the Province of Central Papua with the capital city in Timika. Unmitigated hundreds of billions of rupiah have been prepared to make Timika the capital city.
One of them is the infrastructure development being carried out so intensively. Likewise, other facilities and infrastructure, including the Governor’s Office Building, which if it has been determined, can occupy the central government area in SP3 Kuala Kencana District currently being used by the Mimika Regency Government.
