A public opinion poll conducted by the Indonesian Public Opinion Research and Discussion Group (Kedai Kopi) found that the majority of its respondents were dissatisfied with the performance of President Joko 'Jokowi' Widodo's administration.
'Our survey found that 54.7 percent of the respondents were dissatisfied with the performance of the government,' Kedai Kopi spokesman Hendri Satrio said on Sunday.
Hendri said that most of the respondents had problems with soaring prices of basic goods, the weakening of the rupiah against the US dollar and the slow handling of haze engulfing Sumatra and Kalimantan in recent months.
'Others are upset about the high price of fuel, unemployment, mediocre performance of ministers, expensive health care and many other issues,'
Hendri said Jokowi should take the grievances of the respondents into consideration when deciding whether to conduct another Cabinet reshuffle in the future.
Kedai Kopi conducted its survey, which had 384 respondents, in nationwide cities between Sept. 14 and 17.
