Jayapura – A presidential advisor on regional autonomy, Velix Wanggai, said President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (SBY) has issued a letter that could pave the way for passage of the Government Special Autonomy Bill.

“The President has issued the permit to Parliament and is currently run by the Home Ministry” Felix Wanggai told reporters in Jayapura, Papua on Wednesday (16/7).

The bill will soon be discussed by the House of Representatives. “Because it was not included in the 2014 National Legislation Program, the President issued a permit” he said.

According to him, currently the Ministry of the Interior has conducted inter-ministerial meetings and had been run for over a month to discuss the draft of the 14th of Papua and West Papua on January 28, 2014.

The Home Ministry was a facilitator and the bill has been incorporated to the ministry and is currently being taken by the Minister of Internal Affairs Ministry of Justice and Human Rights to do the level of harmonization and synchronization.

“We hope that in three weeks there would be harmonization at the level of the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights. After that in early August it would be entered in the trial period of the Parliament to be discussed,“ he said.

He added that the president will end his term in October and is taking full attention to the bill.

“President Yudhoyono hopes there would be a new foundation for Papua in the context of accelerated development, of institutional strengthening in Papua and political reconciliation in Papua, public participation in government and other Papuan development sectors,” he said.

Earlier, chairman of tWest Papua People’s Assembly, David Meisiro said, the Draft Law has long been thought by both the Governor of Papua and West Papua Governor.

“So, I hope that under the umbrella of Papua’s Special Autonomy, which includes the Papua Province of Papua and West Papua would have a better future,” he said.
