Section 4: Impartiality

Elections and Referendums


Special considerations apply during the campaigns for elections and referendums and, in some cases, the period running up to campaigns will involve greater sensitivity with regard to due impartiality in all output genres.  Chief Adviser Politics will issue specific advice and, for the UK, will publish separate Guidelines for each campaign period.
