On June 15, 2022, President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo accompanied by Vice President, Ma’ruf Amin, announced their decision to reshuffle the officials in the Indonesia Maju Cabinet. A number of Ministers and Deputy Ministers were removed, and several new names were appointed. Among the newly appointed names, one name garnered attention, but for all the wrong reasons. He is Zulkifli Hasan, the general chairman of the National Mandate Party (PAN) who as of today is the minister of Trade replacing Muhammad Luthfi. Zulkifli is not a new name for Indonesian politics, but his name was previously associated with several major corruption cases. Although Zulkifli often denied it, the public did not believe him.To subscribe please click here
