The report argues the case that the Council is the way forward to regulate the fast changing media industry, particularly to reconcile regulations covering print, broadcast and online media, while ensuring the freedom of press, as guaranteed in Article 10 of the Federal Constitution.

The report also provides a draft code of conduct for the media industry, a dispute resolution procedure for public complaints against the media and an approximate budget for the Council.

The protem committee hopes that the report is well received, and we look forward to engaging the government to make the Malaysian Media Council a reality.
