Jayapura – Ondofolo of Sereh village Yanto Eluay as a Traditional Leader in Jayapura Regency appealed to the entire community to work together to ensure that the Legislative and Presidential Elections can run peacefully.
This was conveyed by Yanto Eluay during a press conference at Heleybhey Obhe Kampung Sereh, Sentani District.
On this occasion, Yanto Eluay asked groups that were still at odds, namely organizations that had been carrying out activities that were contrary to the Government, which had given an appeal to boycott the elections and disrupt the elections, to join with other communities in making the elections a success. Legislative and Presidential Elections in the Land of Papua are currently divided into 6 Provinces.
“We see everywhere, many of our brothers and sisters who are involved in political parties are running as legislative candidates, this is extraordinary enthusiasm. Let’s work together to support the elections so that the elections can run well, safely and peacefully, so that the elected People’s Representatives can work for the progress and welfare of the people in all districts/cities as well as in new provinces,” he explained.
Yanto Eluay also hopes that the Papuan people, especially indigenous peoples, will not be provoked by rumors of boycotting the elections.
“Let’s work together to support and make the Legislative and Presidential Elections a success so that they can be held successfully, especially in several areas that are still prone to potential conflicts or friction between communities. I hope everyone has the same commitment so that this election can run well and peacefully,” said Yanto Eluay.
Not only that, Yanto Eluay also reminded everyone involved, including legislative candidates running at the Regency/City, Provincial and DPR RI levels, to compete well so as not to make the situation or conditions in Papua unconducive.
“I hope everyone, let us compete fairly, so as not to cause things that could disrupt Kamtibmas and create a situation in Papua that is not conducive,” he asked.
