The Ghana Independent Broadcasters Association GIBA has launched a code of conduct for journalists during the 2012 general elections.

This is to regulate the conduct of journalists as far as responsible reportage during this election year is concerned.

It was launched Tuesday by the Metropolitan Archbishop of Accra Archdiocese of the Catholic Church, Palmer Buckle.

Some details about the code include: planning, professionalism, monitoring and evaluation, political party broadcast, objectionable broadcast material, bribery and corruption, right to reply, opinion polling and editorial independence among others.
