15 minutes per week: contenders will share 3 hours of TV and radio air
A casting of lots will take place in the Central Election Commission on August 22. The contenders will share the series of free appearances on the national TV and radio channels.
Meanwhile, representatives of the candidates in opposition are complaining that the free air time is insufficient. Each of 12 candidates will have only 15 minutes of free TV and radio air per week. The situation is complicated by the fact that the candidates in opposition do not have means to place trailers on private channels.
