During the meeting, Governor Pastika said that recently many organizations and parties analyze about registration of indigenous villages and office village with various arguments, as well as discussions and meetings that have been repeatedly made in the Bali provincial government, but has not yet to find a deal. “So far I’ve been giving the parties time to argue and all have different opinions, I’m sure all parties wait for the opinion of the Governor so it is a good momentum for it”, he said.
Governor Pastika explained that from some parties who already met him as the main village assemblies (MUDP), Sabha Purohito, and member of Parliament, I Wayan Koster agreed to register the traditional village (Pakraman). “After I received reports from several parties, it is time for determining the future of Bali and we keep the option to register official village, we simulate the traditional village with all its consequences, but I ask the Provincial Team to create a list of questions that will be listed in an academic script, “he said.
He urged the Parliament to be assisted by all parties to immediately form a special committee and prepare drafts to be passed along. In addition, all parties must be able to ensure that the 1488 traditional villages in Bali can be listed all in the central office. The Bylaw is also expected to answer public concerns during this time of loss of autonomy if indigenous villages are registered. Meanwhile, members of the DPD, Gede Pasek Suardika conveyed that this is a moment and an outstanding choice to save Bali in the future, as the rules are likely for majority so it is time to take strategic decisions.
“In Chapter XIII of the Act about special provision of rural village clearly implied that all relegated to the regulations so I agreed to immediately set up a special committee on the DPD and we are ready to simulate the technical problems,” he said. In line with Gede Pasek all present as MUDP Bali Province and member of Parliament, DPD and DPRD Bali Province for example: AA Oka Ratmadi, Kadek Arimbawa, Arya Wedakarna, Kusuma Putra and Nyoman Parta said ready to form a special committee and prepare a draft regulation which will be passed into legislation.

In response, Governor Pastika asked all forms of support are recorded and used as an attachment in the regulations that will be drafted as evidence. “It is our responsibility to our children and grandchildren so there will be historical evidence for them,” he said.
