SINGAPORE, Oct 14 (Reuters) - Indonesia's president Joko Widodo on Friday appointed former transportation minister Ignasius Jonan as energy and mining minister, the fourth person to hold the high-profile post since July.
Widodo removed Luhut Pandjaitan as acting energy and mining minister and appointed Pandjaitan's predecessor, Arcandra Tahar, as deputy minister at a press conference at the state palace.
Tahar was removed from the position of energy minister in mid-August after less than a month on the job, amid reports he held both Indonesian and U.S. citizenship.
