PM’s message on World Press Freedom Day 3rd March 2014

Today we join the journalist community in celebrating the Freedom of Press Day, which reminds us that press is an essential element of democracy.

           Our Government strongly believes in upholding freedom of the press and is taking all necessary steps to provide safe working environment to journalists to facilitate them in the performance of their professional obligations.

            The efforts of the journalist community are truly commendable for their struggle in upholding the freedom of press in Pakistan. They have sacrificed a lot for upholding the truth and providing citizens with factual information.   

            My Government and party strongly believes that free media freedom of press is an essential component of democracy, transparency, good governance and accountability.
