The Regent of Gianyar in Bali, Tjokorda Oka Artha Ardana Sukawati (Cok Ace), has announced his decision not to seek a second term as Bupati or Regent in the next local election set for November 2012.

The State News Agency Antara, quotes “Cok Ace” saying: “I have decided not to take part in the local elections in 2012 (Pilkada). This is purely my own initiative; I have not been pressured by anyone.”

The Gianyar’s decision was announced at a meeting held at the Gianyar Regency Office after making his periodic accountability report to legislators on the State of the Regency.

Cok Ace also rejected the view that he was lacking in nobility by stepping aside before the end of a second term. “The coming five year term has problems that are more complex and whoever is in charge cannot play around with legal issues,” he added.

The outgoing Regent who is also the Chairman of the provincial Indonesian Hotel and Restaurant Association (PHRI) pledged he would continue to work on behalf of the people of Gianyar. “I will do my best for the people,” Cok Ace said to a chorus of loud applause from the hundreds who gathered to hear his dramatic announcement.

The Democratic Party in Gianyar is now faced with the challenge of finding a suitable candidate to fill the role of the departing Regent.
