AD excluded from discussion programmes on national TV

Alternattiva Demokratika – The Green Party wrote to Public Broadcasting Services and the Broadcasting Authority on the exclusion of AD spokespersons from discussion programmes.

Ralph Cassar, AD Secretary General, said: “AD spokespersons are being excluded from discussion programmes on TVM and TVM2. This is taking place even in programmes where AD has clear positions and policies on issues under discussion. We have called for an urgent meeting with the Broadcasting Authority on the matter”.

Michael Briguglio, AD Chairperson, said: “Having AD spokespersons excluded from many discussion programmes on NET and ONE TV is bad
enough. Exclusion from most discussion programmes on PBS is unacceptable and results in a parody of what democratic and informative public broadcasting should be all about”.
