Jakarta (ANTARA News) - President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has asked his ministers to finish their essential homework during the last 100 days of his tenure.

"In regard to programs in the last 100 days (of the current government), I call on ministers to accomplish their jobs. As the legislative and presidential elections are over, I hope ministers will return to their duties," the President said in a plenary cabinet meeting at the Presidential Office here on Friday.

To that end, the President asked the Presidential Working Unit for the Supervision and Management of Development (UKP4) and the National Development Planning Board (Bappenas) to prepare agenda and homework they need to accomplish soon.

"The most important thing is that we need to accomplish three to five of the most essential jobs by referring to the 2014 government work plan and the revised 2014 state budget as well as written and oral presidential instructions. From the most essential jobs, the UKP4 and Bappenas chief will decide what to do," he said.

The President expressed hope that he would be able to accomplish his essential jobs before his term of office ends in October this year to pave the way for the next government to perform its duties.

The meeting also discussed post-presidential election development and latest situation in Palestine in the wake of the Israeli attack on Gaza Strip.(*)
