“During the electoral campaign, the media should give the opportunity to all political contenders, regardless of their electoral weightage, to express their views, so as to broaden the democratic base by providing the public with an array of choices. Because choice is synonymous with democracy”. This could summarise the breakfast panel discussion event, “The Role of the Media During Elections”, organised by the US Embassy on Tuesday morning, at the City Club, in Port Louis.
