The regulations and conditions which political parties have to adhere to should they desire to air their general election manifesto over Radio Televisyen Malaysia (RTM) will be issued after the dissolution of parliament, Information Communication and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim said Thursday.
He said every party should abide by the regulations and conditions to understand the practices founded on noble values applicable in the world of radio and television broadcasting.
"All parties that wish to air their manifesto will have to be bound by some principles of regulation and what is said to be social ties applied by authorities such as RTM and other radio and TV stations.
"Details will be announced when the time comes after getting the go-ahead from authorities such as the Election Commission (EC).
"It also depends on when the Dewan Rakyat is dissolved. When that happens, we will make this service available to all entitled to it," he told reporters after launching a book on 1Malaysia practices of noble values published by the Special Affairs Department (Jasa), here.
