Abstract
After the new order government, public services in several regions such as the health services, education services and civil services are free of charge particularly for the poor people. Furthermore, the poor are free of charge in obtaining public services. In this perspective, obviously, people have a basic right as the citizen in order to achieve government services. However, by releasing the free of charge policy for the people, government has applied the logic of in-efficiency in delivering services for the people. As the result, the government has to provide extra budget for subsidising several public services. Moreover, the logic of in-efficiency is an alternative value and it is also part of government’s duties in realising interests of the poor people. Furthermore, the logic of In-efficiency particularly the case of free public service policies are the consequence of implementation of the political contract between public officials and communities. However, the role of government in providing free public services are not in an ideal circumstances. It has to be understood that the free public services are not only services function but also political imagery and it is also part of political contract to society. Thus, the definition of public service is likely to be defined only in the perspective of political elites/authorities. Comprehensively, pro poor policy principles can be realised immediately. By releasing free public services for the poor, It will dismiss the assumption that the government has limited financial resources. Furthermore, it causes the government ought to work on both efficiency and maximum the economic advantages. Unfortunately, it is not a sufficient reason for the government to be stand behind the poor. Finally, the values have mentioned in the government mission will create a pro poor government management which based on the principle of equality and justice. Obviously, the sustainability of policies will depend on who will be elected as the public officials
