Focus Group Discussion (FGD) Formation of the Task Force for Supervision and Monitoring of News, Broadcasting, and Campaign Advertising in Mass Media in the 2020
Supervision of the Election of Governors, Regents and Mayors Simultaneously in 2020 is an important note. Election oversight is divided into prevention and control measures themselves. Moreover, the election of regional heads opens up space for political socialization from participants in cyberspace. This activity, although it has got clear rules. However, the pilkada participants always seek covert campaign loopholes.
Pilkada in the context of bringing voters closer to the candidate for regional head. Thus, the campaign between candidates for regional heads uses all the space that can be used for socialization. One of them is campaigning in mass media, broadcasting, and online media. Especially for this campaign method, the organizers have also tried to bring order to the election participants. The goal is that all participants get justice in the campaign.
However, efforts to maintain campaign fairness in the mass media, print, online, and broadcast still open room for problems. For example, how to match the timing of building self-image and campaigning for election participants? Not to mention, the distribution and number of campaigns. Another problem, participants have different communication relationships with the platform and media owners. So, there are only differences in style, technique, and campaign patterns in the media.
