JAKARTA (Reuters) - Indonesian President Joko Widodo has discussed another possible Cabinet reshuffle with his coalition, but is not yet ready to make such a move, the Vice-President was quoted as saying by online news service Detik.com on Friday (Nov 13).

Mr Joko reshuffled his Cabinet in August, after less than a year in office, in an effort to reassure investors worried about a policy drift that allowed economic growth to slip to a six-year low.

"The reshuffle plan was part of the discussion, but the president said it is not the right time," Mr Jusuf Kalla was quoted as saying, referring to a meeting between the President and coalition members late on Thursday.

The Vice-President on Oct 27 told Reuters a discussion then about a Cabinet reshuffle had not reached a "very serious level yet".
