NEC warns media to follow laws for election

THE National Election Committee (NEC) on Wednesday warned media outlets to closely follow the rules stipulated in the election law during the upcoming municipal and provincial election campaigns.

Tep Nytha, the secretary general of the NEC, said in a meeting about the purchase and sale of political advertisements on television and radio that companies can sell airtime at market price, but they needed to follow the law.

"The private radio and television owners who want to sell their airtime to political parties without obeying the regulations and procedures of the NEC will be fined or have their station closed temporarily," he said.
