(From The Jakarta Post)
The East Kalimantan Provincial legislature has allocated itself the staggering amount of more than Rp 1 billion (US$105,263) for the 45 councillors' uniforms this year, according to government statistics obtained by The Jakarta Post on Wednesday.
According to the 2004 provincial budget data, each councillor was allotted Rp 20 (US$2,105) million each for three sets of official uniforms and another Rp 2.5 million each for sport shirts.
The councillors also received the same amount last year, but it was not clear, however, what the budget was for the years 1999 to 2002. The councillors began their five-year term in 1999.
