Ampera Cabinet

The Ampera Cabinet (Indonesian: Kabinet Ampera) was the Indonesian Cabinet which served under President Sukarno and later on, Acting President Suharto from July 1966 until October 1967. The Cabinet was formed after the Provisional People's Consultative Assembly (MPRS) session of 1966 which commissioned Suharto to form a new Cabinet.[1] Although Sukarno would not be removed from the Presidency for some months, for all intents and purposes, the person who was truly in charge of the Cabinet and Indonesia by this point was Suharto.
