GTV favoured NPP in allocation of airtime ahead of 2020 polls


Summary short_text

EU's Election Observation Missions' final report on Ghana's 2020 election says that the state broadcaster, GTV, favoured the New Patriotic Party in its coverage ahead of the polls.

On coverage given to the presidential candidates of the two parties, the report noted that the NPP's Nana Akufo-Addo, who was the incumbent president, was given a lot more attention, compared to his main challenger, John Mahama, while indicating that the coverage was generally neutral.

After monitoring 13 media outlets with nationwide reach; GTV, Uniiq FM and Daily Graphic, Ghanaian Times, Adom TV, UTV, TV3, Joy FM, Peace FM, Citi FM, The Chronicle and Daily Guide, the observer mission noted that opportunity was offered for minor political parties to participate in programmes, although the NDC and NPP dominated coverage.
