The Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra) has directed the country's TV channels to flash the new poilitical map of Pakistan ahead of the primetime 9 pm news bulletin.

Dawn quoted the Pemra directive as saying, “All the news channels (both public and private) have to flash the political map of Pakistan for two seconds before airing the news bulletin at 9 pm on a regular basis.

“All the satellite TV channel licensees (news and current affairs/regional language) are, therefore, directed to comply with the above-mentioned recommendation in letter and spirit without fail,” it added.

The directive was issued on November 3 but was made public on Sunday, UNI news agency said. No reason was given for this directive. 

The directive was issued on the basis of a letter from the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting on September 16, media reports said.
