Parties Prepare for Reshuffle

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Hendrawan Supratikno, head of economic division at the Indonesia Democratic Party of Struggle (PDIP), said that his party had prepared a number of names to fill in ministerial positions in case of the third cabinet reshuffle. However, Hendrawan said that the names would not to be revealed yet.

Hendrawan confirmed that the list of candidates had been submitted to the president.

"But everything is up to the President, because [cabinet reshuffle] is his prerogative right," Hendrawan said on Tuesday, January 3, 2017.

National Democratic (NasDem) Party chairperson Irma Suryani Chaniago said that her party would accept any President’s decision. NasDem, Suryani added, would be ready if its cadres were to be appointed as ministers or otherwise.

"We will provide unconditional support for the government," Irma said.

National Mandate Party (PAN) secretary general Eddy Soeparno claimed that Administrative and Bureaucratic Reform Minster Asman Abnur is the best cadre they have. However, Eddy said that PAN would accept President's decision.

Meanwhile, National Awakening Party (PKB) secretary Syaiful Bahri Anshori believes that there would be no cabinet reshuffle in the near future. However, Syaiful said that his party has competent cadres to fill ministerial positions.

A number of political parties have made moves amid a spreading rumor saying that President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo would conduct the third cabinet reshuffle. President Jokowi had reportedly planned to reshuffle his cabinet in November 2016, but the plan was postponed and would be resumed in early 2017.

It was reported that the reshuffle plan was aimed to increase the number of government supporting parties. A parliament member said that President Jokowi met Great Indonesian Movement (Gerindra) Party and Prosperous Justice Party (PKS) leaders offering ministerial positions in the cabinet.

The source said that both Gerindra and the PKS had not made any decisions yet.

"Gerindra might take the offer," the source said on Thursday, last week. "I heard that the PKS is still thinking about it."
