Why you didn’t see much of the DA on television

The SABC has failed in its mandate to allocate fair and equitable coverage to opposition parties.


Over the dates of 05 June – 17 June, the coverage split for the 3 largest political parties on terrestrial TV news reveals a gross disparity.
The coverage per the three biggest parties is as follows:

• ANC- 3hrs 4mins 6secs;
• DA- 1hr 13mins 57secs; and
• EFF- 43mins 6secs.

This means that the ANC got covered nearly 3 times more than the DA.

If the situation does not improve the DA will consider referring the SABC to ICASA’s Complaints and Compliance Committee (CCC).
