Indonesia VP says Widodo not ready to reshuffle cabinet

"The reshuffle plan was part of the discussion, but the president said it is not the right time," Jusuf Kalla was quoted as saying, referring to a meeting between the president and coalition members late on Thursday.

Indonesian President Joko Widodo has discussed another possible cabinet reshuffle with his coalition, but is not yet ready to make such a move, the vice president was quoted as saying by online news service Detik.com on Friday.

Widodo reshuffled his cabinet in August, after less than a year in office, in an effort to reassure investors worried about a policy drift that allowed economic growth to slip to a six-year low.

The reshuffle plan was part of the discussion, but the president said it is not the right time,” Jusuf Kalla was quoted as saying, referring to a meeting between the president and coalition members late on Thursday.

The vice president on Oct. 27 told Reuters a discussion then about a cabinet reshuffle had not reached a “very serious level yet“.
