He led the way to build a national coalition to support the presidential hopes of Joko Widodo and early this year, when the leading Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) struggled to nominate a strong candidate for the Jakarta governorship, Surya jumped in first to support Basuki Tjahaja Purnama. That saw other parties, including PDI-P and Golkar, decide to follow his lead. As a businessman, Surya's Indocater catering business is believed to be his major cash cow, but he is best known for his Media Group, publisher of Media Indonesia and owner of the influential Metro TV news channel. He also has interests in energy, property, media and logistics.
