The matter of reshuffling the cabinet surfaced after a discourse to merge the Ministry of Education and Culture with the Ministry of Research and Technology.

Another discourse emerged on establishing the Ministry of Investment as a new structure in Jokowi's cabinet line-up.

It is believed that a likely merger of ministries and the appointment of a new minister would change the composition of the existing cabinet, thereby triggering a reshuffle. Related news: Jokowi's cabinet should promote synergy, solidity: LIPI scientist
