First published on CMEV's website on 5 October 2020.
ANFREL member in Sri Lanka, Centre for Monitoring Election Violence (CMEV), designed and published a booklet providing a glimpse into the nature of reporting carried out by mainstream newspapers during the election period in the country.
CMEV said the media is a stakeholder that can never be excluded in any country in which democratic elections are conducted.
Sri Lankan newspapers have wide and increasing circulation across the country and thus have the power of informing and shaping the views of society, CMEV noted. The booklet contains perspectives of diverse range of newspapers having such circulation during the elections.
