STDM calls for creation of two independent regulatory media authorities.
"The constitutionalisation of these two authorities will certainly help promote the information sector and ensure its freedom, in accordance with the rules of ethics," President of the Union Amel M'zaabi told the Constitutional Authorities Committee at the National Constituent Assembly (NCA).
These two authorities shall be governed by a Higher Information Council while respecting their independence, she added.
She also said that the regulatory authority of audiovisual media should be independent including from unions representing the sector's professionals.
These unions, she added, could propose personalities non-represented in them, while the regulatory authority of written press should be represented by union and independent members.
According to Mr. M'zaabi, members of the regulatory authority of the audiovisual media should be independent and highly qualified.
