The fate of the NasDem Party will now depend on whether Surya Paloh, who took over leadership of the party during its first congress in Jakarta on Saturday, can set aside his presidential ambitions to build up the party, an analyst says.
More than 1,000 congress participants unanimously elected Surya as the new chairman, replacing Patrice Rio Capella, despite objections from party members who wanted the party to be led by a younger politician.
Yunarto Wijaya of Charta Politika said that 62-year-old Surya should focus on uniting the party following the exit of many of its members, including media tycoon Hary Tanoesoedibjo, who resigned from his post as chairman of the party's council of experts in protest of Surya's move to seize control of the party.
"If NasDem is being used for his own personal ambitions, the party could experience a huge setback. Surya's electability is lower than the party's, according to several surveys," Yunarto told The Jakarta Post.
Surya, the owner of the media group that runs MetroTV and Media Indonesia, left the Golkar Party not long after he was defeated by Aburizal Bakrie in the race for the party's leadership in 2009. In 2010, Surya established the mass organization National Democrat, the precursor of the NasDem Party, which was then widely seen as an alternative vehicle for Surya's political ambitions.
Yunarto said that the party should not play down Hary's exit, which he said had triggered other members to follow suit.
The presidential election was not discussed during the congress, let alone an official endorsement of Surya as NasDem's candidate.
Former NasDem chairman Patrice said that Surya would announce the new NasDem board members in the next two weeks.
