President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo is scheduled to announce his second Cabinet shake-up in less than a year at the State Palace in Jakarta later on Wednesday.

Cabinet Secretary Pramono Anung confirmed on Wednesday that twelve ministers would be moved.

"Today, the President and Vice President [Jusuf Kalla] will officially call several ministries. There are approximately 12 positions that will change [...]," Pramono said at the State Palace complex on Wednesday.

He further said President Jokowi would announce his major Cabinet shake-up at 11:00 a.m. and inaugurate them at around 1:30 p.m.

"Then, at 3:00 p.m. the President will lead a limited cabinet meeting with the new ministers at the Merdeka Palace. Of course, the President’s directives related to the tasks of the new ministers will be discussed in the meeting," he explained.

Coordinating Political, Legal and Security Affairs Minister Luhut Pandjaitan, Finance Minister Bambang Brodjonegoro and Energy and Mineral Resources Minister Sudirman Said are among ministers reportedly to be replaced. (ebf)
