In order to measure the dependent variable of this study, namely the sensitivity of Earnings management,the sensitivity of accruals, the sensitivity of real items and the sensitivity of income items were used through the GMM approach.
The results showed that political connection has a significant effect on the sensitivity of income items and the sensitivity of real items, but it does not have a significant effect on the sensitivity of accruals.
