The Indonesian language Bisnis Indonesia reports that members of the Jakarta-based Tourism think tank (MPI) have called for the replacement of Indonesia's Minister of Culture and Tourism Jero Wacik in a rumored reshuffle of President Yudhoyono's Cabinet expected sometime before the end of this year.

Speaking on behalf of the MPI-Jakarta, Rudiana said: "Although disasters continue to befall the tourism industry this is not a reason for the Republic of Indonesia's tourism industry to be devastated due to the weak leadership over the past two years that allows the private sector to be brutalized."

Rudiana explained that as the result of the weak leadership of the Ministry in charge of tourism, the first echelon of Culture and Tourism ministry officials have sought safe haven, waiting for their individual pensions. Rudiana said that officials are aware that the Minister's appointment is a political position.

Rumors of a reshuffle in President's Yudhoyono's cabinet have resurfaced in combination with the second anniversary of his election to Indonesia's top job which will take place on October 20, 2006. The President has promised that he will annually review the results achieved by his cabinet, a promise kept on the first anniversary in 2005 that saw him replace three ministerial posts.

In a stern rebuke of Minister Wacik's performance as Minister of Culture and Tourism, Rudiana told Bisnis Indonesia that Wacik has only measured his success to date in terms of his ability to please his superior, as measured in the number of times the President attends special programs organized by his department.
