Bali governor Made Mangku Pastika’s absence from the island since July 11, 2012 has been the focus of much widespread speculation and concern.

In Singapore for what is officially described as a "routine medical check-up," the spokesman for the governor’s office, I Ketut Teneng, assured the press that Pastika remains in regular contact with his staff via telephone from Singapore.

Teneng said on Thursday that he was in communication with governor Pastika on matters related to provincial administration. During a recent conversation, said Teneng, the governor issued his profound thanks to the deputy-governor A.A.N. Puspayoga, members of the Bali House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali) and the people of Bali for their expression of concern for his state of health.

As reported by, the governor announced via his spokesman that he “was fine, had never collapsed, not fainted, nor was he in critical condition as some have recently indicated was the case.”

Teneng said the governor was indeed fine and hoped to return to Denpasar in the very near future. Earlier, Teneng had told the press that the governor was in a "sterile" room that did not allow distractions from outside visitors and caller.

As reported, the general check up carried out at the Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore on July 12, 2012, indicated the governor required a non-specified medical procedure. Dr. Philip Koh from Mount Elizabeth in a statement issued on July 21st said about the governor, “He needs to rest well in order to fully recover.”

Dr. Philip Koh medical specialty at Mount Elizabeth Hospital is listed as a cardiologist.

Missing From Buleleng Regent’s Installation

The continuing absence of the governor necessitated the deputy-governor AAN Puspayoga filling in for the ailing governor at a ceremony inaugurating the new regent Putu Agus Suradnyana and vice-regent Nyoman Sutjidra for Buleleng regency.

The inauguration in Buleleng remains hotly contested with the defeated candidates appealing the election results before the Indonesian Supreme Court and the Bali Election Committee.
