Parliament's chief for RAI determined to remove politics


Rome, June 6 - The newly elected chairman for the
Italian parliament's supervisory committee for the public
broadcaster RAI said Thursday he would work to remove political
influence from the network, whose key posts have traditionally
been divvied up among ruling and opposition parties.
"I hope that during this legislature we will do superb work
and, without concealing it, in all transparency, I hope that the
guiding light of the committee will be to try detaching politics
from communications and from State TV, which belongs to all the
citizens," said Roberto Fico, a member of the anti-establishment
5-Star Movement, who was elected chairman on Thursday.
"Free journalists will be safeguarded," he said.
The supervisory committee appoints a number of members of
the administrative council that runs RAI.
Other members of the council are appointed by RAI's largest
shareholder, the finance ministry.
The parliament supervisory committee also has a say on
issues such as programming, budgets and advertising.
