ISSUES OF COVERAGE OF ELECTORAL PROCESSES DISCUSSED
The Uzbekistan National Association of Electronic Mass Media (UNAEMM) and nongovernmental tele-radio broadcasters have held a gathering in Tashkent on issues of coverage of processes of the elections of President of the Republic of Uzbekistan on nongovernmental mass media.

The gathering was attended by UNAEMM administrative board members, the heads of the press service of the Central Electoral Commission and territorial tele-radio stations as well as project managers and employees of mass media.

The head of the press service of the Central Electoral Commission, N.Nurmatov, and others said that mass media played an important role in conducting the elections of President of the Republic of Uzbekistan in conformity with such democratic principles as openness and transparency.

Mass media will give wide coverage of the elections in accordance with Article 5 of the law “On elections of President of the Republic of Uzbekistan” and the main events programme for the preparation and conduct of the elections of President of the Republic of Uzbekistan, which was approved by the Central Electoral Commission.

On 21 September this year, an agreement was signed between the Central Electoral Commission of the Republic of Uzbekistan and the Uzbekistan National Association of Electronic Mass Media on coverage of the process of preparation and conduct of the elections of President of the Republic of Uzbekistan. In conformance with the agreement, UNAEMM will carry out a number of tasks such as making reports on coverage of election campaign processes, ensuring the allocation of air time and conducting public awareness campaigns aimed at raising voters’ legal culture.

At the gathering, there was discussion of a programme of measures of UNAEMM and nongovernmental tele-radio broadcasters on the basis of that agreement for coverage of the process of preparation and conduct of the elections of President of the Republic of Uzbekistan. Specifically, such issues as a need to arrange the material and technical bases of nongovernmental tele-radio broadcasters and a need to provide the necessary equipment for their studios were looked at.
