Guidelines for the media during elections


Radio and television broadcasters, cable companies, newspapers, periodicals, and other media have a role to play in the application of certain provisions of electoral laws, especially regarding the rules on political financing and the auditing of election expenses. While the responsibilities of media representatives are given here in layman's terms, these articles of law remain effective. Any media outlet that does not comply with these articles of law is committing a criminal offence and could be liable to a fine.

Our guidelines for the media during elections are only available in French. We can provide a courtesy translation upon request by e-mail at [email protected].
