Federal Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry said on Wednesday that the print and electronic media regulatory authorities will be abolished and a new authority will be formed that will oversee all types of media.
He said the Pemra law will be reviewed, as will the functions of the Press Council of Pakistan. Pemra handles electronic media while the press council handles print media. Chaudhry said that they will consult with media persons and establish a single media regulatory authority that will also be responsible for ‘cyber media’ and social media.
