Ramallah – The Coalition for Integrity and Accountability – AMAN, underlined the need for state-funded and state-owned media to comply with the standards of integrity, impartiality and equal opportunities in their media coverage of the electoral candidate lists during the campaigns.
AMAN coalition underlined the necessity to abstain from using any state logistic or human resources to serve any particular list. In its letter to the Supervisor General of Official Media, His Excellency Minster Ahmad Assaf, AMAN Coalition invited official media that provide media or technical services to the electoral lists to observe the principle of equal opportunities for all candidates. On the other hand, the Palestinian Broadcasting Corporation (PBC) needs to offer technical services to all electoral lists and provide them with equal opportunities to offer each list equal broadcasting time to any other list. This fair treatment will enable all lists to benefit from timely media coverage and prevent any potential complaints of unfair treatment.
