Tanjung Pasir, Tangerang (ANTARA News) - President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has stated that he is not planning to reshuffle the cabinet anytime soon, because the ministers must concentrate on their work.

"There are no plans to reshuffle the cabinet just yet. I will try to not bother about it until 2014. The entire focus will be on doing work right now," the head of state said on the sidelines of an unannounced visit to a fishermen's village in Tanjung Pasir on Friday.

President Yudhoyono said his statement was aimed at cabinet ministers so they could focus on their tasks and not get disturbed by the reshuffle issue.

On the occasion, the President also pointed that the replacement for former Sports and Youth Affairs Minister Andi Malarangeng would come from the Democratic Party.
