(12/3/2017)

After serving the maximum allowable two-terms as Bali’s Governor, Made Mangku Pastika will enter his formal retirement in a distinguished career that included long service as the Chief for the Bali Provincial Police, head of the National Ant-Narcotics Agency, and Bali’s Chief Executive Officer.

NusaBali reports that Governor Pastika has no intention of purchasing a rocking chair for his coming retirement. In discussing his future plans, Pastika says he is considering perhaps managing a school, running for legislative office, or running public welfare group (LSM).

“The point is that there are many ideas and agenda inside my head. For me, we must use our lifetime and be useful for as long as we can. Don’t waste the life we’ve been given. If needed, I can run a public welfare group (LSM),” explained Pastika on Monday. November 28, 2017.

Bali’s former Chief of Police and the man credited with bringing the Bali bombers to justice said he wants to know what it's like to be working outside the “ring,” noting he has been the subject of much criticism and suggestions during his years of public service. Adding: “Just once in the future let me be the one who is doing the criticizing. So why don’t I form a LSM or a group that has the job criticizing the government.”

When asked if he had a possible name for this LSM, Pastika replied: “Later, I’ll make Bali Development Watch (BDW) whose function will be to control, monitor, and provide critical input on matters related to Bali’s development. That’s just an example. Hopefully, I will be given the chance to achieve this by the Almighty. The main point is that we must fill our lives with usefulness. Don’t waste your life, that’s what wise people say.”

When asked about the coming election for Bali’s Governor, Pastika said he hopes his successor would be able to lead Bali better than he has. “Basically, let him do a better job than we are doing right now,” said Pastika.

Until now, Governor Pastika has remained non-committal in saying who he will support to become Bali’s next Governor in the 2018 Gubernatorial election.
