Serbian Progressive Party voters are aware that there is censorship on television stations that broadcast nationwide and that these outlets are not equally open to representatives of the authorities and opposition, a June 21 survey conducted by the Demostat research and publishing center shows.

"A third of Serbian citizens believe that representatives of the government and opposition are not equally represented in the television programs of the state broadcasting company (RTS), the Prva, Pink, Happy and B92 television stations," according to a Demostat field survey which was done on a sample of 1,600 citizens in the entire country at the start of May.

According to the results of the study, three-fifths of respondents, or 58 percent, said they noticed that RTS and other television stations that have nationwide coverage "are not equally open to the ruling parties and opposition parties."

"Namely 47 percent of respondents believe that TV stations are not open sufficiently to opposition parties and that this is bad for Serbia. Eleven percent of respondents said that it was good that television stations with nationwide coverage do not allow the same amount of space in their programs to representatives of the opposition and government," the survey shows.
