TRIBUN-PAPUA.COM, MERAUKE – Deputy Chairman of Commission I of the Papuan House of Representatives (DPR), Paskalis Letsoin assessed that the presence of the new autonomous region (DOB) of South Papua Province (PPS) covering Merauke, Asmat, Mappi, and Boven Digoel regencies was appropriate .
“I think that Merauke Regency and its surroundings really need an expansion of South Papua Province because this has been a long struggle,” said the chairman of the PDIP faction in Papua Province to Tribun-Papua.com, Saturday (30/4/2022).
According to Paskalis Letsoin, the very wide presence of South Papua Province will reach services to remote areas.
“The very large areas of South Papua Province can be reached by the government or other public services. It is very positive for community development,” said the Kei-blooded man from Merauke.
The sectors that must be boosted, said Paskalis Letsoin, are education, health, and providing space and a place for indigenous Papuans (OAP) in South Papua Province to lead this area.
According to Paskalis Letsoin, the appointment of Merauke as the capital city of South Papua Province is also correct.
“Merauke deserves to be designated as the capital of South Papua Province,” he said. (*)
