Paugeran in Legislation

Sri Sultan Hamengkubuwono X

Tough discussion concerning the Constitutional Bill of Special District Yogyakarta (RUUK) found a new hope after Sri Sultan Hamengkubuwono X allowed if paugeran will be incorporated into the system of law. Paugeran means using a mechanism applies within Ngayogyakarta Palace regarding the head of regional election. This statement was directly accomplished under the speech of Sri Sultan Hamengkubuwono X at Garuda Hotel in October 3, 2011.

The mechanism of paugeran, which could merge into the regional administration, particularly implicates to the Privileges Act seems to be a long process of considering its own progress on a push-pull determination or the selection of Governor of Special District Yogyakarta (DIY). However, if the mechanism of paugeran that characterizes Ngayogyakarta Hadiningrat Sultanate merges into the system of legislation, it becomes the main solution corresponding to accommodate both interests between Palace and Government.

The reaction of Sri Sultan HB X is considered as a form of fusion between two dimensions of culture and democracy. Cultural dimension mentioned that the positions of Governor and Deputy Governor of Yogyakarta are the rights of the Sultan and Paku Alam, which based on the origin of Special District Yogyakarta (DIY). While according to the dimension of democracy stated the person who will serve as the Governor and Deputy Governor must meet the procedure regarding his requirements and skills first. The solution of these two dimensions lies in the Sultan and Paku Alam preparing the eligible regional head as stipulated by Indonesian government. 

This point clearly states that the Sultan who reigned as the Governor must also have skills and meet the requirements to become the regional head. The change in election that does not set the Sultan to automatically become the Governor of Yogyakarta impacts on the internal changes of Ngayogyakarta Sultanate. Therefore, the Palace is expected to be ready to face those changes.

If this happens, Ngayogyakarta Hadiningrat Sultanate really has undergone a fundamental change concerning the power transition. The changes are according to the Sultan is a reality and demand of every leader in Ngayogyakarta Hadiningrat Sultanate experiencing changes and challenges in the different era.
