The University of Uruguay rejects the state media law – Prinsa Latina

In its decision, the Central Board of the Academic Institution expressed that the legislative proposal for services for the dissemination of audiovisual content does not comply with the standards of democratic quality in communication.

He pointed out that it lacks transparency in the use of the spectrum, “and thus directly affects the rights of citizens.”

Audelar expressed his full desire to make contributions so that the state has a regulation on audiovisual communication and effectively implements the reality and needs of the state, adjusted in terms of human rights and democratic quality.

For its decision, the Council considered the report submitted by the Interdisciplinary Group of Academics of Udelar with a view to examining the regulatory proposal for consideration by Parliament.

The text indicated that leaving the decisions on the use of the electric spectrum and the regulation of audio-visual communication means in the hands of the executive authority is far from international standards and state standards in recent years.

A few months ago, the opposition Amplio Front condemned the controversial proposal submitted by the government from the urgent consideration law to meet the expected challenges, including among the parties that are members of the ruling right-wing coalition.

At least, Cabildo Abierto opposed the vote on the project this week, objecting to its content enabling cable operators to provide internet services and the open loophole for foreign companies or individuals to obtain licenses in Uruguay.
