goodmorningpapua.com – The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) assesses those efforts to prevent corruption within the Papua Provincial Government and 29 district/city governments in Papua does not work or in stagnant. This was conveyed by the Deputy Chairman of the KPK, Alexander Marwata in Jayapura City, Tuesday (23/11/2021).
Alex stated that the KPK Monitoring Center for Prevention (MCP) score on efforts to prevent corruption in Papua in 2020 was 25 percent. The score is worse than the 2019 corruption prevention score, which reached 34 percent. The decline in the corruption prevention score shows that the KPK’s intervention in the eight sectors of planning and the use of public budgets needs to be increased.
The eight sectors start with planning and budgeting the Regional Revenue and Expenditure Budget (APBD), procurement of goods/services, licensing, supervision of the Government’s Internal Supervisory Apparatus, management of the State Civil Apparatus, optimization of regional taxes, regional asset management, and financial governance.
Alex emphasized that the MCP score in Papua will only increase if the regional head is seriously committed to maximizing the performance of the eight sectors. Without a commitment to the local government, the KPK’s intervention in the eight sectors is useless.
“The key is one, namely the commitment of regional heads in Papua. We from the KPK will continue to provide assistance to each region, but as long as the commitment exists,” he said.
The Regional Secretary for Papua Province, Ridwan Ruikutun, stated that efforts to assist the KPK in Cenderawasih Earth have been carried out since 2016. He emphasized that the Provincial Government of Papua is very responsive and supports the action plan for the corruption eradication program carried out by the KPK. “It’s just that for this year, the MCP has only reached 42 percent. However, we are still optimistic that we will achieve better targets in the future,” said Ruikutun.
