President Joko Widodo still holds out the signals on who and when the position will be taken over to.

"First is the coordinating ministers and the ministers," said President Jokowi in an exclusive interview of Primetime News with Metro TV, Wednesday (8/12/2015).

Nevertheless, President Jokowi had indicated the second chapter of reshuffle when he explained the vacant position of the Presidential Chief of Staff. "It (the position) is on the second, third or fourth chapter," he said smiling.

Jokowi then evaded more questions on the chances of the second stage of reshuffle. Not much of a difference when asked about when the Chief of Staff will be filled, the president was reluctant to discuss further.

"I will speak to the Presidential Chief of Staff first," added Jokowi laughing.

Several politicians have also mentioned the possibility of the second chapter reshuffle. Akbar Faisal from NasDem Party suspected the Working Cabinet reshuffle announced previously was only the first wave.

There will be another wave(s) if observing the current economic condition. "We are providing the best support to handle this problem," Akbar stated.
