Indonesia's President, Dr Susilo Bambang Yudohoyno, earlier this week announced the outcomes of a long-awaited and much-debated cabinet reshuffle. Many of the new appointments followed analysts' predictions.
But in an unexpected move, current Tourism Minister Jero Wacik will become the Energy and Mineral Resources Minister, while Dr Mari Elka Pangestu will transfer from the Trade portfolio to become the new Tourism and Creative Economy Minister.
(It is not known how the cabinet reshuffle will affect Mr Wacik's wife, Triesna Wacik a.k.a. Miss Toilet. For the record, Dr Pangestu is married and has two children, therefore a member of her family could in theory become the next Miss Toilet or even a Mr Toilet.)
New ministerial appointments in Indonesia often take on their new role with vigour
at least initially. They often make impromptu visits to the facilities under their control and meet some of their new colleagues'. Occasionally, they even listen to some of their constituents' feedback.
In 2009, the then newly re-appointed Tourism Minister Jero Wacik was once famously disappointed by the poor state of Denpasar/Bali's Ngurah Rai Airport during an unannounced visit.
So, if you happened to bump into the new Tourism Minister in the near future, what would you say?
