JAKARTA (Yosefardi) – The ruling party PDI-P seems fully confident that President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo will eventually dismiss Minister of State-Owned Enterprises (SOEs) Rini Mariani Soemarno and appointing her replacement should there’ll be another round of cabinet reshuffle, Kompas reported.

Therefore, according to PDI-P lawmaker Hendrawan Supratikno, PDI-P has prepared their candidate to be proposed to President Jokowi as Rini’s replacement.

Hendrawan reminded that Rini’s dismissal was a recommendation from the House of Representatives’ (DPR) Special Committee on Pelindo II cases.

The Special Committee, Hendrawan said, concluded that Rini has violated the law due to her decision of approving the extension of partnership between state port operator PT Pelindo II and Hutchison in the management of the Jakarta International Container Terminal (JICT).
