SACP to re-open debate on regulation of media
Blade Nzimande says the communist party wants to push for regulation of the private media.
PRETORIA - The South African Communist Party (SACP) has announced it intends re-opening the debate on the regulation of the media.
The party's general secretary Blade Nzimande made the comments at a briefing on Wednesday following the five-day tripartite alliance summit held in Pretoria.
Nzimande says while it's not an alliance position, the communist party wants to push for regulation of the private media.
"We want to argue for independent regulation of the media. It can't be the case that everybody is subjected to independent checks while there's a section of society which is so influential, but only intends to self-regulate."
