As part of its Election Watch project, the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) is monitoring the coverage of the impending election (November 28) on NBC television’s evening news bulletin throughout November 2014. The focus on the Namibian Broadcasting Corporation arises from Namibia’s commitment to the SADC Principles and Guidelines Governing Democratic Elections which state that there should be “equal opportunity for all political parties to access the state media” (2.1.5).

NBC pledges equal free airtime for parties

The Namibian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) has pledged to allocate equal free airtime to all parties and presidential candidates registered for the upcoming elections. Parties are also free to purchase additional airtime from the NBC for further broadcasts.
