Official statement of the Thursday, June 8, 2017

The Superior council of audio-visual, joined together in plenary college, examined the speaking times of the countryside of the legislative elections for the period from May 1st to June 4th, 2017 when the principle of equity in the expression of various political trainings prevails.

It is respectnot to have respected this principle that RTL and Europe 1 were warning statements after the Council observed strong imbalances in the statements of the speaking times provided by these radio stations.

It invites these last to implement as fast as possible the corrective measures necessary in order to fully ensure a pluralist and respectful political expression of the equity of the speaking times whereas the electoral deadlines are imminent.
