Monti covered by TV rules ahead of elections


Rome, January 3 - Caretaker Premier Mario Monti
must adhere to the regulations regarding the balanced exposure
of politicians in the lead-up to elections in Italy, like
everyone else, according to comments made Thursday by Vincenzo
Vita, media pointman for the centre-left Democratic Party.
State television broadcaster RAI and other Italian
television stations are obliged to offer the most important
political parties in the nation relatively equal visibility
under the so-called ''Par Condicio'' or ''Fairness'' (equal
time) rule.
The par condicio rules ''are being defined in more specific
terms than had been done in the past in relation to the role of
a Prime Minister in the case of a political function he may
have'', Vita said. ''The Premier also has to adhere to all the
rules of political communication, as do all the others''.
RAI on Thursday cancelled a scheduled January 6 appearance
by Monti on a popular RAI Sunday show where ex-premier Silvio
Berlusconi, engaged in a 10-day media blitz which Monti had been
seeking to emulate, last month threatened to walk out after
being interrupted.
