Pre-election broadcasting regulation workshop held in Lesotho

"MASERU: A five-day training workshop started on Tuesday, 19 July 2011, in Maseru, Lesotho, to promote existing legal and regulatory frameworks covering broadcasting regulation during election periods, as well as election coverage by broadcasters.

This workshop for journalists and the Lesotho Communications Authority is taking place from 18 to 22 July 2011.
Broadcasters and regulators play an integral part in ensuring that voters and citizens are well informed during election periods.

It is imperative that broadcasters convey a balanced and accurate picture of the political candidates, parties and their agendas. A regulator has an obligation to monitor broadcasters' output rigorously in order to respond to complaints."
