    Chairman of a non-government organization which manages the Piaynemo Tourism, Brian Fakdawer, in Sorong, Thursday, said the tourist destination of Piaynemo was closed on April 17 to support the implementation of the Indonesia elections 2019. 

    "The Piaynemo tourist destination was only closed one day on April 17 during the election," he said, adding that it was a form of support for local tourism managers to the success of the national agenda.

    In addition, he said, this tourist attraction was closed so that destination managers could come to polling stations to cast their votes. 

    The manager has issued a circular to all tourism stakeholders, especially travel agencies, homestay, resorts, and cruise ships, telling that the Piaynemo destination has been reopened. 

    "We express our gratitude to all tourism operators in Raja Ampat who have followed the circular so that the election runs smoothly," he said again.
