State Secretary Pratikno confirmed on Monday that President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo had prohibited his ministers from leaving Jakarta this week but dismissed speculation the move was related to a possible Cabinet reshuffle.
The President, Praktikno said, will hold a plenary Cabinet meeting this week and all ministers are expected to attend. “As usual, Pak Jokowi expects all ministers to come,” he said on Monday as quoted by kompas.com.
There is nothing special about this meeting, Pratikno insisted, adding that it was not unusual for the President to ask his ministers to stay in town before a meeting. The upcoming Cabinet meeting will discuss government programs in general, he said.
Rumors of a possible Cabinet reshuffle have erupted in recent weeks following the Golkar Party and the National Mandate Party’s decision to defect from the opposition camp and support the Jokowi administration. (ary)
