An Indonesian Broadcasting Commission (KPI) official has criticized private news broadcaster Metro TV for giving too much airtime to the Nasdem Party, which was founded by Metro TV owner Surya Paloh.
'Metro TV provided nine spots to the Prosperous Justice Party [PKS], seven to the Gerindra Party, one to the Hanura Party, six to the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle [PDI-P], six to Golkar, eight to the Democratic Party (PD), two to the National Mandate Party [PAN] and 34 to Nasdem on one day,' KPI chief Judhariksawan said as quoted by kompas.com on Tuesday.
According to a regulation, each political
party may take up more than 10 TV spots per day.
According to the KPI, most parties had placed more than 10 advertisements per day.
'But Nasdem is advertised more than 30 times a day by one TV station,' he said.
He vowed to discuss the violations at the next KPI meeting. He also reminded all media to maintain professionalism and remain neutral during the campaign period, which lasts until April 5.(tjs/dic)
