Is Bali Ungovernable?

Governor Says that the Need for ‘One Island Management’ in Bali is an Idea Well Before its Time


Bali News: Bali, Indonesia, One Island Management, Regional Autonomy, Made Mangku Pastika,

(2/12/2017)

The State News Agency Antara reports that Governor Made Mangku Pastika remains pessimistic that “One Island Management” can ever be achieved for Bali without some fundamental change in national politics.

“’One Island Management’ is a holistic approach and requires a change in the laws as well as the political situation in the country,” said Pastika in a meet and greet session with members of the Island’s tourism industry and the general public on Saturday, February 11, 2017.

The Governor predicted that it will take 10-25 years and that, even then, it remains uncertain if the political condition in the Country can change in that period of time. This is connected with the establishment of regional autonomy in Indonesia as a national political platform.

“So things will remain as they are. If we remain in this condition the ‘One Island Management’ remains pie in the sky, a concept too advanced,” said Pastika when quizzed by a member of the audience on the concept.

Because of this, he cautioned, it is best for Bali to simply focus on policies that remain within its power to perform. “Don’t talk about regencies, you can’t. I have tried for 10 years as Governor without success. Because of this, let's just do what we can in a piecemeal way on a provincial level,” said the Governor.

Pastika admitted that he couldn’t discuss matters touching on the power and authorities of the Regents and mayor of Denpasar because each has their own interpretation of the public welfare. The Governor said that in all of Bali, the Regency of Badung profits most from tourism.

Pastika lamented: “(In their view), the Regents and Mayor look only to tourism to improve the welfare of the people. The race to develop tourism. You can’t even try to force them to develop agriculture.”

As Pastika draws to the end of his second term as Governor, he said whoever replaces him will find it impossible to change the current situation given the state of national politics.

“The theory is easy, but in practice it’s impossible. I have the experience. I’ve tried everything without success. This is because of the current political situation, nothing else,” he said.
