In the report that the plenary of the Assembly will discuss in the second and final debate it is noted that the media has power and that´s why it is necessary that safeguards are established, through regulations.
However, these should be implemented within a framework of “unrestricted repect to the freedom of expression and the rights of communication.” But the opposition considers it is serious that the Constitution considers a fundamental right as a public service, as they are different concepts.
In this regard, the ruling of the Constitutional Court establishes that communication has a “double dimensionality.” It adds that constitutional rights must be implemented and enforced through public policies. The coordination of Alianza Pais and the authorities of the Assembly will hold today a meeting to define the date of voting on the amendments.
