BANDUNG - The West Java Provincial Government asked the Mayor of Bandung Oded M Danial to immediately appoint Benny Bachtiar as the Regional Secretary of the City of Bandung according to the order of the Ministry of Home Affairs (Kemendagri).
West Java Regional Secretary Iwa Karniwa said that he had received a recommendation letter from the Ministry of Home Affairs and the State Civil Apparatus Committee (KASN) in response to a letter filed by Mayor Oded regarding the replacement of the Bandung Regional Secretary on 29 October.
Iwa ensured that the Ministry of Home Affairs and KASN still requested that Oded continue to appoint Benny Bachtiar as Secretary. In line with that, West Java Governor Ridwan Kamil also authorized this central command to convey to Oded.
"The governor gave direction and I have signed the power of attorney from the Governor to ask the Mayor of Bandung to implement the written recommendations from the Ministry of Home Affairs and from KASN, that must be done," he said at Gedung Sate, Bandung, Wednesday (11/07/2018 )
Benny is possible to be replaced in the middle of the road if the evaluation done by Oded is unsatisfactory. But Iwa ensures the replacement process must also follow the applicable rules.
"If after the process is inaugurated, based on the evaluation of the Mayor, the performance is not appropriate, it can be implemented (reimbursement) according to the applicable provisions. So the principle that has been decided (Benny) must be appointed," he said.
Therefore, Iwa hopes that Benny's inauguration process can be carried out in the near future, considering that if this continues to be a polemic, the impact of the development of the city of Bandung will be disrupted. At least there are two urgent agendas to be discussed, namely the 2019 Regional Budget and Bandung City RPJMD 2019-2023. "I signed the letter and it will be sent today," he said.
