Indonesia is considered the most powerful country among other Southeast Asia countries and its political growth has become an appealing object for large number of comprehensive studies. Two of the significant phases in Indonesia’s political history that draws considerable attention from many foreign scholars and academics are new order era and reformation period especially in term of public life, power’s visibility and media development. This article delivers an extended discussion of those three concepts as it draws upon several junctures of political development in Indonesian history to describe the practice of life in the country. It also explains how the power’s visibility in Indonesia and media development intertwines by examining related literatures, data and information to the concepts. As recorded by history, the state’s new order era was shaped by President Suharto’s personal dan profesional qualities. It was administered by the regime’s effort to curtail the society’s direct participation in the state’s decision-making process by increasing military intervention into the civilian sphere and increasing military interpretation of the business, diplomatic and political elites. Simultaneously, Indonesia’s media was closely scrutinized by the officials under the regime. Following that, the downfall of Suharto and his New Order regime in 1998 had brought changes to Indonesia, such as the improvement of the society’s role in the state’s performance. It also stimulated changes within the law enforcement institutions and had provided more opportunities to the society to access information sources freely such as the rise of the Internet.
