He said the governor and regents as well as mayor in Papua have to fight for protection which prioritizing the indigenous Papuans in the recruitment of IPDN students in Papua.

“All the time we observed that in the recruitment of IPDN students for Papua, the quota for indigenous Papuans is still limited. Sometime the indigenous candidates were ignored,” said Kotouki.

Earlier, the Head of National Civil Service Agency of Papua Province Nicolaus Wnda said in 2016 as many as 977 indigenous Papuans conducted the Basic Competency Test on Computer Assisted Test basis in the recruitment of IPDN students.

“The BCT would be conducted into three phases, which is the first phase would have 300 participants, and 400 participants for the second phase and 277 participants for the third phase,” he said.

According to him, the quota for Papua Province was lower than the previous year, which is 53 students from previously 54 students.

“So these 977 candidates would compete for 53 seats for Papua Province,” he said. (Abeth You/rom)
