The New Cabinet

Last night, President Susilo Bambang Yudono (SBY), who was inaugurated with Vice President Boediono on Tuesday 20 October, announced his Cabinet Ministers for the next five years.

The Cabinet consists of 3 coordinating minister and 31 ministers, most of them are new comers in the cabinet, including Coordinating Minister of Politics, Laws & Security Air Marshall (Ret.) Djoko Suyanto, Minister of Foreign Affairs Marty Natalagawa, Minister of Home Affairs Gamawan Fauzi and Minister of Communication & Information Tifatul Sembiring.

While old faces who are still holding their previous cabinet portofio includes Minister of Finance Sri Mulyani, Minister of Trade Mari Elka Pangestu, and Minister of Culture & Tourism Jero Wacik.

Beside the minsters, President SBY also annouced three chiefs of state agencies including Chief of the State Intelligence Agency (BIN) former National Police General (Ret.) Chief Sutanto.

For detailed information on the new cabinet minsters, please click here.

In this regards, I would like to congratulate President SBY for his re-election, Vice President Boediono for his new position, and all the cabinet ministers for their new roles & responsibilities. I sincerely hope that each and every one of them would focus their thoughts, voices and actions merely for the very best interest of the people of Indonesia. Therefore they would leave behind whatever their political backgrounds
