RCTI, MNC TV and Global TV are owned by Hary Tanoesoedibjo, the vice presidential candidate from the People's Conscience (Hanura) Party, ANTV and TVOne are linked to the Golkar Party's presidential candidate, Aburizal Bakrie, and Metro TV is owned by NasDem Party chairman Surya Paloh.

His speech won a standing ovation from NasDem mass organization founder Surya Paloh and the majority of congress participants.
Surya has been tipped as the party's chairman since it was founded two years ago, Patrice said.
Surya stopped short of mentioning Hary and the friction within the party in his speech. "We need ads and logistics but they are not everything and I am sure the party will be able to reach its goals," said Surya, a media tycoon more experienced in politics than Hary.
Surya should change his authoritarian style and make democracy a reality in the party," he said.
Iberamsjah believes it will be difficult for NasDem to gain seven percent of the vote in 2014, even with an influx of politicians from established parties, including Golkar, where Surya served his political apprenticeship.
Six months later, Luviana was fired from her job, just a couple of weeks after speaking with Metro TV owner Surya Paloh. Ucu, Affan and Darwin recorded Luviana's struggles, including her meetings with Metro TV executives and Surya, and included the footage in the film.
Surya is the founder and chairman of the National Democratic Party (NasDem), and wields a lot of influence among his colleagues. But Luviana has been able to keep fighting for her rights, in part due to assistance from the Alliance of Independent Journalists (AJI) and the Solidarity for Luviana (SOVI) activist group. "I have nothing but friends, and we decided to go on," she said.

Among former Golkar politicians who have decided to join NasDem are former Golkar chief patron Surya Paloh, a founder member of NasDem, journalist-turned-lawmaker Meutya Viada Hafid, lawmaker Jeffrie Geovanie and former Golkar executive Ferry Mursyidan Baldan.

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.

Paloh stages a party to show Nasdem is alright
Surya Paloh, the chairman of the mass organization National Democrat (Nasdem), celebrated his 60th birthday on Saturday flanked by several public figures and hundreds of Nasdem members, amid rifts in Nasdem after Sri Sultan Hamengkubuwono X, Nasdem's "national iniator" left the organization and inspired dozens of members to follow suit.
Former Muhammadiyah chairman Syafii Maarif, one of the 45 people who championed the declaration of the movement, spoke at the event and criticized the government's failure to curb corruption and prevent moral decay. He said the country was at a critical point and that it needed good leadership to embark on reforms.
"Our country has a President but no leader," he said.
Paloh said the event was staged at the historic Gedung Pola on Jl.
The ads listed the names of the two national iniators - Paloh and Hamengkubuwono X - and the names of the 45 "national declarators", including prominent members of political parties such as the Golkar Party and the PDI-P.
Both Paloh and Hamengkubuwono are members of Golkar. Golkar later issued a warning to its members not to join Nasdem.
In 2009, Paloh lost the race to chair Golkar to Aburizal Bakrie. There is a widespread belief that Nasdem was established as Paloh's vehicle to create a new party despite his insistence that it would remain a non-political organization.
