Papuans Support Sustainability of Special Autonomy



The government has budgeted special autonomy or Otsus funds for the Papua and West Papua regions in the 2021 Draft State Budget (RAPBN) to Rp. 7.8 trillion higher than in 2020 which amounted to Rp 7.6 trillion.

This is in accordance with the mandate of the Special Autonomy Law Number 21 of 2001 that the Special Autonomy Fund is equivalent to 2% of the total national general allocation fund ceiling (DAU) and is valid for 20 years. The focus of its use is to support the improvement of health and education in Papua and West Papua. .

Likewise to support the development and maintenance of infrastructure, empowerment of the people's economy and poverty alleviation.

Apart from the Special Autonomy Fund, the government has also allocated an additional Infrastructure Fund (DTI) of IDR 4.3 trillion in the 2021 Draft State Budget.

It has been written in the 2021 RAPBN Financial Note that DTI is expected to be able to connect quality land, sea and / air transportation in all districts in the recipient province for at least 25 years since 2008.

Support for the Papua Special Autonomy Volume II also comes from the Governor of West Papua Dominggus Mandacan, his party has asked for the support of all parties to support the Papua Special Autonomy, which in the near future will be discussed by the central government together with the Provincial Governments of West Papua and Papua.

The governor also emphasized that there are two things that need to be done in terms of Special Autonomy Volume II apart from funding. First, giving greater authority to the Provincial Government in Tanah Papua in matters such as human resources and natural resources and secondly, involving other line ministries (K / L).

Special Autonomy for Papua volume II can certainly be a stimulus for Papua to continue to rise in various sectors, both infrastructure, education and health, so it is important that this regulation continues.
