Abstract: This paper tries to disentangle the causes of conflicts of interests between the proponent and the opposition factions on the implementation policy of the provincial government. We also explain the impact of the provincial government policy to close the business operation of the Alexis Hotel after the period of conflicts of interest. In this research, we use Pfetsch’s theory on public policy, as well as Steinberger’s and Sartori’s theory on conflict to explore the sources and forms of conflict of interest between the executive government, the parliament, and the interest groups. Through qualitative method with a typical case study, we find that the emergence of the provincial government policy to shut down the operation of Alexis Hotel can occur in the form of the campaign promises, the moral preferences, the supports from the element of society, and the applicable regulations. Such policy gives a substantial impact on law and order, popularity, and the management of other cases.
