Abstract
On 31 August 2021 the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) has delivered two judgments dealing with political pluralism in programmes on public television (RAI). In both cases the ECtHR emphasized the need for pluralism in the news and current affairs programmes and in the political platform programmes on the public broadcaster. In the first case (Associazione Politica Nazionale Lista Marco Pannella and Radicali Italiani v. Italy) the ECtHR found no violation of the right to freedom of expression of a political association who complained about the discontinuance of the political platform programmes on RAI since 2008. In the second case (Associazione Politica Nazionale Lista Marco Pannella v. Italy) the ECtHR found a violation of the political association’s right to freedom of expression as guaranteed by Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR). In this case the ECtHR found that the applicant association had been excluded from, or at least highly marginalized in media coverage of political debate, as on three occasions they had been excluded from taking part in very popular current-affairs television programmes on the RAI.
