(9/1/2008)

At the inauguration ceremonies held on Thursday, August 28, 2008, for Bali's new Governor Drs. Made Mangku Pastika and Vice-Governor AA Puspayoga, Indonesia's Minister of the Interior Mardiyanto said that unemployment, poverty and health are three priority areas that must be addressed by the Island's new leaders.

As reported in the Bali Post, Mardiyanto who traveled to Bali to officiate at the inauguration ceremony, reminded Bali's two top-ranking officials that their government must work hard and be responsive to the needs of the people. In addition, he reminded Pastika and Puspayoga to protect and restore the primacy of Balinese culture, protecting it from divisive outside influences.

The Interior Minister praised the Balinese character and the high value based on balance, simplicity, humility, solidarity and tolerance that were reflected in the smooth election process that elected the new governor and vice-governor.

At the same time, the Minister warned of the euphoria and excess of the four-year-old national autonomy movement which have resulted in uncoordinated development efforts by regional and national leaders. Speaking to the new Bali executives and members of the Provincial legislature, Mardiyanto called on them to pursue a new unity between the center and local governments in confronting the problems of development and an end to the practice where governors, bupatis (regents) and municipal mayors each go their own separate ways in the performance of their duties.

Call for Conciliation

Governor Pastika used the occasion of his inauguration to issue a call to those who contested his position during the election to "let bygones be bygones" and now join together to build Bali. Pastika said: "Forget those things which have hurt your feelings and any inappropriate words spoken. Hopefully all this can be forgiven with a clean slate that allows us to build a better Bali that is safer and more prosperous."
