Answer: 
No

The Organic law does not include any provisions on the role of the media during the campaign, neither on the right of equal access by electoral contestants to the state-owned media, nor to the principles of (free or paid) political advertising, that would aim to ensure a balanced and pluralistic coverage of all candidates. Equally, the other legislation relevant to the media, mainly the Broadcasting Corporation Act of 1973 and the Cybercrime Code Act of 2016, are silent in regards to regulating the media coverage of the electoral campaign.
