Leading up to the 2024 Election, Papuan Religious Leaders Encourage Community Unity

Jayapura – As the 2024 elections draw near, Ustad Ismail Asso, a prominent Islamic figure in Papua, shared his insights on the upcoming electoral preparations. In his statement, Ustad Ismail conveyed his confidence that the electoral process in Papua would unfold safely and peacefully.

He earnestly appealed to all stakeholders, particularly candidates, political parties, and the general public, to prioritize maintaining peace and sidestep conflicts among supporters. Ustad Ismail underscored the vital need for candidates, both gubernatorial and regent, to be fully conscious of their roles in ensuring that the election proceedings do not serve as a catalyst for societal divisions.

“We implore candidates and their associates to steer clear of potential conflicts, especially in response to verification outcomes or electoral defeat. It is crucial that the political elite refrains from inciting the community and works towards sustaining harmony in Papua,” he emphasized.

Acknowledging the potential risks involved, Ustad Ismail Asso also underscored the pivotal role of security forces, encompassing the Papua Regional Police and district police, along with advocating for the participation of the Indonesian National Armed Forces (TNI) in upholding order. He expressed hope that collaborative efforts between the police, TNI, and traditional leaders would shield Papua from any horizontal conflicts.

“We stress that the selection of a leader must be grounded in the leader’s quality and capability to champion justice, equality, and the welfare of the people. Personal motives that may incite tensions within society should not be the driving force behind the electoral decision,” he stated.

In conclusion, Ustad Ismail Asso asserted that safeguarding the peace and well-being of the Papuan people during the elections is a collective responsibility shared by security forces, traditional leaders, and all segments of society.
