Umar Patek, a member of the Al Qaeda-linked militant group Jemaah Islamiyah, was sentenced to 20 years in jail by an Indonesian court in 2012 after he was found guilty of mixing bombs that ripped through two Bali nightclubs a decade earlier. A total of 202 people were killed, including 88 Australians.
Patek was also jailed for his role in the bombings of several Jakarta churches on Christmas Eve in 2000 that killed at least 15 people.
He was granted a five-month reduction in jail time as part of a series of remissions regularly given to inmates on Indonesia's independence day on Aug 17.
Zaeroji, head of the law and human rights office in East Java where Patek is jailed, told Reuters that the bomber was now eligible for parole this month because he had served two-thirds of his sentence after a series of such reductions.
The matter has been passed to the central government for final approval, he said.
"We have proposed this to the justice and human rights ministry and from there it will be decided," said Zaeroji, who goes by one name.
The justice and human rights ministry did not respond to a request for comment from Reuters.
