Armenian president proposes to set up ad hoc task force to completing legislative regulation of shifting to digital broadcasting

YEREVAN, September 18, /ARKA/. Armenian president Serzh Sargsyan proposed to set up an ad hoc task force to be tasked with completing development of a legislation to secure shifting to digital broadcasting.

A spokesman for Sargsyan, Armen Arzumanian, said the president suggested that the task force should be led by human rights defender. He said the proposal was prompted by active debates on a draft law on television and radio and by opinions of some political figures and public organizations.

In a press release the presidential press office said a task force comprising representatives of all interested parties and individuals will show support to a comprehensive discussion of all existing problems.

Armenia’s National Commission on TV and Radio announced July 20 a tender for televisions companies for the right to shift to digital broadcasting. Out of currently operating 22 television stations there should remain 18 – 9 will be accessible nationwide and 9 only in the capital city. Private stations will have to obtain within six months equipment to secure digital broadcasting. The license will be granted for a term of ten years. Under a government-designed concept of shifting to digital television all local radio and television channels will have to pass to it in 2015.  -0-
