President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono installed seven new ministers and 13 deputy ministers during a ceremony at the State Palace on Wednesday.

Two of the six replaced ministers attended the inauguration, former justice and human rights minister Patrialis Akbar and former maritime affairs and fisheries minister Fadel Muhammad.

Speaking to reporters before the inauguration, Patrialis said he was not worried about his future after being dumped from the cabinet.

“Don’t be afraid of life, just take it easy and everyone has enjoyed the fruits of my labor,” he said, referring to the Constitutional Court Law that was recently passed by the House of Representatives.

Patrialis said he would return to school to get his doctorate in law because he wants to become a Constitutional Court justice.

“I’m going back to school and I will take a little break. Two years [in the cabinet] is a long time, traveling all over Indonesia to visit 150 penitentiaries and immigration offices under my [former] ministry,” he said.

The new cabinet line up was announced last night by the president. The cabinet includes seven new names and five ministers with new portfolios, including two more professionals.
