National Assembly election-Political broadcasts start tonight


12-September-2011

As determined by the casting of lots last week, independent candidate Jacqueline Hoareau will be the first to introduce her campaign, followed by the Popular Democratic Movement (PDM) headed by David Pierre and the Parti Lepep headed by James Michel.

The opening 13-minute addresses by the two political parties and independent candidate tonight will be aired at 7.30pm on radio followed by the televised versions at 9pm.

The radio broadcast will be repeated tomorrow at 8am.

Campaigns by individual candidates will be transmitted on radio starting tomorrow September 13 at 7.30pm and televised at 9pm with repeats being run on radio the following day.

Each candidate will have a maximum 5 minutes to address their constituency.

The order in which candidates will present their broadcast campaigns on radio and television will be determined by the alphabetical order of the district they represent, meaning Anse Aux Pins candidates will start first, ending with Takamaka on September 24.

Two districts will feature per day, except for the last district on September 24 when three districts will feature.

Closing addresses (also for a duration of 13 minutes) by party leaders will be delivered on September 25 at 7.30pm on radio and televised at 9pm, but will not be repeated on September 26 as the cooling off period (the time when all campaigning stops) will begin on that day.

Starting tomorrow and everyday until the campaigning ends, Seychelles Nation will present the candidates who will be presenting their five-minute campaign on radio and television on that particular day.
