P8 and 9 , Media 'An absence of provision for free airtime in the state broadcaster, contributes to unequal treatment of political parties and candidates. There are also no provisions in the law regulating paid airtime and space, which could open space for uneven treatment of contenders. The NEC did not promulgate media regulations in respect of airtime, in circumstances where the state broadcaster is considered compelled by economic necessity to charge for all broadcasting activities. Accordingly, airtime assigned to political parties and candidates, disadvantaging contestants with less resources, contributed to an uneven playing field.
