Election reporting is, in essence, no different from any other form of reporting. But during election campaigns, the media as well as politicians come under even more intense scrutiny than usual, as the public follows the news with greater interest than normal. Any report is monitored for possible bias, distortion or inaccuracies. In such an atmosphere, journalists and editors have to maintain even more care and diligence than usual. This is when the good habits of impartial reporting, fact-checking and reliable sourcing really come into their own. This handbook is a practical guide for journalists reporting on elections in Libya, and is based on IWPR’s wide experience of training and working with reporters in the Middle East and in Africa, Europe and Asia.
