(TAP)- The Independent High Authority for Audiovisual Communication (French: HAICA) Tuesday urged media to respect pluralism and diversity and guarantee a neutral and fair coverage in the election period.

Small parties are being excluded, the commission said. Complaints were received according to which some "small parties" would have endured "systematic exclusion by audiovisual media," said HAICA member Hichem Senoussi.

Senoussi, who addressed participants in a workshop on "Pluralism and the Right of Access to Media in Election Period," called on media outlets to give a voice to all parties.

HAICA President Nouri Lajmi said the right to access media is guaranteed for all political parties, particularly in the election period.
