Regarding the publicly expressed reactions that the daily news program of the national television Telma TV lack information on the activities and views of the largest opposition party on current social and political issues, the Agency for Audio and Audiovisual Media Services (AVMU) reminds that one of the basic programming principles the programs of the broadcasters are based on  is an objective and impartial presentation of the events with equal treatment of the different views and opinions and enabling the free formation of public opinion on certain events and issues.

“The media are independent in creating editorial policy, but political pluralism is vital to the development and preservation of democratic societies. That is why the media must be aware of their role and responsibility in creating public opinion, i.e. the obligation to the public to make the programs open to different political views,” says AVMU.
