"The enactment of Bali Governor Regulation number 80 of 2018 concerning the protection and use of Balinese language, script and literature as well as the holding of the Balinese language month is a serious commitment in glorifying the Balinese script so that it has received positive response from all government institutions, educational institutions, private institutions and the wider community, " AA Ngr Oka Sutha Diana Explained.
He explained, in Bali Governor Regulation number 80 of 2018, the position of Balinese script in writing office name signs, roads, tourism facilities and other public facilities above names written in Latin letters.

Karohumas further explained that Law number 23 of 2014 concerning regional government article 236 paragraph (4) gave the authority of regional heads to draw up regional regulations that contained local content.

Pergub number 80 of 2018 has fulfilled the requirements and the process of determining regional legal products as regulated in law number 12 of 2011 concerning the formation of laws and regulations. "Pergub number 80 of 2018 also does not contradict law number 24 of 2009 concerning the country's flag, language and symbol as well as the national anthem." Because this law regulates the use of language rather than regulating the use of scripts, "he stressed.
