Bali’s governor, Made Mangku Pastika caused considerable comment among the public and the press when, on Saturday, January 5, 2013, did a "sleep over" at the house of a poor woman in North Bali.

Governor Bali, Made Mangku Pastika and Madame Pastika came to call on the simple home of a 75-year-old Karangasem woman and ended up staying the night.

According to Beritabali.com, the 75-year-old  Balinese woman, Ni Made Wartini, of Duda Timur Village in Karangasem, had her home recently repaired under a provincial homeowner’s assistance program created by Governor Pastika.

The Pastika’s visit to the woman’s home, according to the provincial spokesman, was to see first-hand the results of the home-repair program and gather input from villagers on the effectiveness of government programs at the grass root level.

The governor’s spokesman, Ketut Teneng, denied that the unprecedented overnight stay at a local citizen’s home had any connection with the race this May for Bali’s governor. Teneng said that Pastika and his wife’s stay was “purely to gather the public’s aspirations and make sure the program of home improvement was running smoothly.” Moreover, said Teneng, the governor wanted direct input from the public on provincial programs without hearing rehearsed statements and replies.

Teneng said that the Pastika’s have plans to make future overnight stays at homes of local citizens in Bali.

During 2012, the provincial government of Bali has repaired and upgraded 6,000 homes owned by poor Balinese. 20,000 more homes are on the waiting list for future repairs.
