Latest Rumors on Cabinet Reshuffle: The Round-Up

Chess fallen
Summary

  • Based on information compiled by D-Insights, the reshuffle rumors emerged after the Capital City Law legislation process continued following the appointment of the capital authority head. Jokowi will reportedly announce his decision after the law cementing the legal status of the capital city authority passes.
  • Those who are likely to leave the cabinet are ministers with professional backgrounds because there is no 'political cost' to replace them. However, there is no guarantee that ministers from political parties will be safe.
  • Several new faces are rumored to be filling cabinet posts. Apart from Hadi Tjahjanto, PAN Chairman Zulkifli Hasan is also likely to join the cabinet. Zulkifli actually prefers one of the top PAN officials to serve as a minister. The reason is that he currently has a state position as Deputy Chairman of the People's Consultative Assembly (MPR). However, rumors have it that Jokowi is happy and wants to work with Zulkifli in the cabinet.
