Jakarta. Every minister should be ready for evaluation, Justice Minister Yasonna Laoly said on Tuesday (25/04), following President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo's last week mention of a cabinet reshuffle.

To reshuffle the cabinet, said Yasonna, is the president's constitutional right.

He added the evaluation of the ministers' performance is highly needed.

"Evaluation is needed for the ministers to work the best they can to achieve the targets set for them," Yasonna said.

On Saturday, the president said he would not hesitate to sack his ministers if they fail to achieve the targets.

Jokowi has already twice reshuffled the cabinet, the last time in July after opposition parties — the Golkar Party, the National Mandate Party and the United Development Party — pronounced their support for the government.
