One of the requirements of the new election legislation is to avoid discrimination and sexism

The National Council draws the media’s attention to the new demands that have emerged with the adoption of the Electoral Code of Ukraine, that is to avoid discrimination and sexism.

According to part four of Article 47 of the Electoral Code of Ukraine, election commissions, the mass media and news agencies, governmental authorities, authorities of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, local governments, their officials, associations of citizens, other persons in disseminating information about elections, which is not campaigning-related, in accordance with Article 51 of Electoral Code must adhere to objectivity, impartiality, balance, reliability, completeness and accuracy of information, avoid discrimination and sexism.

Therefore, the National Council, when supervising the compliance of broadcasters with the requirements of the election legislation, will take into account this legal aspect.
