Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono unveiled his new Cabinet on late Wednesday night with much fanfare but few surprises, reported Singapore daily the Straits Times.

Many of the names had leaked out over the past few days, and have been summed up by analysts as a mixed bag.

The line-up ranges from respected, hand-picked technocrats to political appointees from the President's six-party coalition who do not have the track record he will need to push much-needed reforms.

Yudhoyono called the 34-member team Kabinet Indonesia Bersatu Kedua (Second United Indonesia Cabinet).

“This is the team who will work hard in the next five years to enhance prosperity in the country,” he said at a press conference at the Istana Negara.

One surprise was the new health minister, Dr Endang Sri Rahayu Sedyaningsih, the head of research and development at the Health Ministry. Prominent eye surgeon Nila Moeloek was widely reported earlier to have been slated for the post.
