Coalition Cabinet


TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - PRESIDENT Jokowi reshuffles his cabinet for the third time. Rather than signifying the end of his term, the latest reshuffle recaptures the mood in Jokowi’s early presidency: strengthening support, by including two new parties in the coalition: the National Mandate Party (PAN) and the Crescent Star Party (PBB). Instead of improving the performance of the cabinet and his administration in the remaining two years of his tenure, Jokowi still consolidates power from supporting parties. Now nearly all parties are under his control. What is it for? To bring back to the demented idea of three presidential terms? Or is it a premature move of consolidation ahead of 2024 Elections?
