Indonesia’s Jokowi set to announce new cabinet


(Jakarta) – Indonesia´s Joko Widodo is set to announce a new cabinet in a line-up that could include the former owner of Inter Milan.

Widodo, popularly known as Jokowi, beat Prabowo Subianto — a former military general accused of rights violations — in April elections to secure another term as president of the world´s third-biggest democracy.

The victory followed a bitter campaign plagued by fake news online and claims from Subianto that the government staged a “massive, systematic and fraudulent” election, which sparked deadly post-poll riots.

But the pair have since appeared together in apparently friendly public meetings, including on Monday when Subianto, 68, hinted that he and another member of his Gerindra party were tapped for top government posts.
