A Cabinet reshuffle is in the cards in Indonesia.

Local media, quoting an aide to Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, are reporting that the reshuffle is likely to take place next month.

The latest poll by the Indonesian Survey Circle shows the Cabinet's approval rating plunging to 37.7 percent.

It was at 52.3 percent in its first 100 days in January last year, and 46.5 percent a year ago, in September.

The poll cited five reasons for the public's unhappiness over the ministers' performance.

Among them was alleged corruption involving senior officials in ministries such as the Youth and Sports Ministry and the Manpower and Transmigration Ministry.

A separate survey in June also showed president Yudhoyono's approval ratings dipping to 47.2 percent.

That is the first time his ratings have fallen below 50 percent.

A review on the Cabinet ministers by the president's office earlier this year also found several ministers do not measure up.

The Golkar Party -- a major coalition partner -- has called for a Cabinet reshuffle.
