VOI NEWS 14072017 12:00 Local Time GMT +7

President Joko Widodo has categorically refuted an allegation that he will reshuffle his cabinet this week. After inspecting the construction of low-cost landed houses in the Pesona Bukit Batuan housing complex in Batu Ampar, East Balikpapan, East Kalimantan on Thursday (July 13th), President Joko Widodo affirmed that there will be no cabinet reshuffle this week. The issue of cabinet reshuffle surfaced in the past few days following a rumor that the President will evaluate the performance of his cabinet ministers.  But he added he does not see whether there will be a cabinet shakeup in the long run. He also declined to comment on a number of ministers who will allegedly be replaced. President Joko Widodo has twice reshuffled his cabinet since he came to office in October 2014. (Ant)

Sultan rejects any plan to build toll road in Yogyakarta

Governor of special district of Yogyakarta, Sri Sultan HB X rejects any plan to build toll road in the region on fear of affecting stability of the local economy. He said at a meeting with Gunung Kidul Regent, Badingah and a group of local people in Yogyakarta on Thursday (July 13th) that no toll road will be built in Yogyakarta. He said that in 2019 a new international airport will be operational in Kulon Progo. The access road would be wide enough but it is not a toll road. He hopes that the Gunung Kidul district administration would soon hand over a program for development of infrastructure after the completion of the Kulon Progo airport. He said that he will do the negotiations with the central government. Meanwhile, Gunung Kidul Regent, Badingah said that more tourists are expected to visit the region with the construction of the new airport in Kulon Progo. (Ant)
