Although cabinet reshuffle issue currently becomes the talk of the town and also becomes the hot news in several media, President Joko Widodo asks all ministers to focus on their works.

“All ministers must focus on their works,” the President said answering the journalists’ questions when he watched the final of Bhayangkara Cup football tournament, at Gelora Bung Karno, Jakarta, Sunday (3/4) evening.

The President firmly said that no one has the rights to push him on reshuffle issue. “Don’t do that,” he said.

Moreover, the President also asked all sides not to intervene in deciding whether the reshuffle would be carried out or not. “Everyone should not intervene,” he asked.

Previously, Cabinet Secretary Pramono Anung explained that the authority to carry out cabinet reshuffle is fully on the President. “It is only the President, God, as well as PakJusuf Kalla who know it,” Pramono told the journalists in his working room, last Tuesday (29/3). (TKP/ES)(MMB/YM/Naster)
