If previously an issue of the formation of new administrative areas of Papua crowded in Indonesia, the vice president said that it was just an unfounded discourse. Because according to him, the People’s Consultative Assembly has discussed with Papuan’s Assembly.
One of its results was to consult the discourse of the formation of new administrative Papua areas with them. Moreover, if Papua wants to be several new areas, there are possibly the other counties will request the same thing. Therefore, the government till now has not revised the moratorium of the formation of new administrative areas.
It is not a new issue, but it was a long time ago and was never realized. Because if this happened, the other counties would ask the same thing. Till now there are 300 counties which asked this formation and none of them has gotten it, he said.
The vice president also added that one of the principles adhered to the government is the moratorium of the formation of new administrative areas. It means that the formation will not happen in this reign.
