In this regard, taking into account the proposals of the latter, in order for each candidate to inform the voters about the main provisions of their electoral programs, they have been granted 638 minutes of free airtime on the TV and radio channels Uzbekistan and Yoshlar of the National Television and Radio Company, 206 minutes on 12 local TV and radio channels of the National Television and Radio Company, 286 minutes on the TV and radio channel Toshkent of the same company.

It was noted that during the election campaigning, candidates need media assistance in creating an atmosphere of openness and transparency, dissemination of any information related to their election campaigning in line with the criteria of efficiency, adequacy, equity and objectivity. When covering the electoral activities of presidential hopefuls in news programs and other information materials, the media provide for equal playing field, including the duration and amount of coverage, using the materials broadcast and published in a single information unit.

In the meantime, the relations pertaining to the allocation of paid airtime or print space shall be carried out on the basis of a contract concluded between the media outlet and political parties. The information disseminated by the media must be true, should not violate the rights and legitimate interests of candidates and political parties.
