Bangli legislators are saying it is very difficult to contact the regent, Made Gianyar — and that the regent doesn’t seem to care that he is out of touch.
The matter was aired last week in Bangli’s legislature, when legislator I Wayan Natis told the assembly inability to contact the regent on his mobile phone created difficulties when there were important things to discuss.
He said another legislator, Wayan Koster, had recently tried to contact the regent three times but all attempts were unsuccessful. In the end, Koster sent a complaint to Natis.
It’s not only legislators who have difficulty getting in touch with the regent. Similar complaints have been voiced by officials, who say coordinating action is impossible without involving the regent directly.
Regent Gianyar said the communication problem was because he was using a new-technology mobile phone that often didn’t pick up a signal or suffered a high level of call drop-outs.
He said network providers should upgrade their service.Filed under: Headlines
