New Cabinet Lineup, So What Gitu Lho?

Cabinet reshuffle, so what gitu lho? (This is Indonesian English of So What?). That was the reaction of some readers when I asked them about the issue. Would that make any difference at all? was also a common question. Yet, they wanted to know, who would be in and out of the cabinet.
As president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono is reviewing performance of his ministers, some names are tipped to fill the new cabinet lineup to be announced early next month after Lebaran (Ied Fitr) holiday.
Chief Economic Minister: Rizal Ramli or Boediono or Dorodjatun Kuntjorodjakti or Sjahrir
Finance Minister: Boediono or Sri Mulyani (currently minister of national development planning)
Trade Affairs: Aburizal Bakrie (currently chief economic minister)
Industry: Mari Pangestu (currently minister for trade affairs)
Energy: Hatta Radjasa (currently minister for transportation affairs)
Transportation: Burhanuddin Napitupulu (Golkar Party executive)
State-Owned Enterprises: Sugiharto (PKS maintain its support) or Sofyan Djalil (currently minister for communication and information)
