Free and fair elections may not be necessarily the freedom and the knowledge to vote, but also an interactive process where the electorate shares information, access information about their preferred candidates, policies, political parties and the election process. That helps them to make very precise and informed opinions when voting. Besides, the media acts as a crucial watchdog to a democratic process, and also safeguard the interest of the people without any biasness. Therefore, a democratic process covered by a gagged media would be the direct contradiction of its role.

The declaration also encouraged the people to respect the role of the media in promoting good governance and democracy. To fulfill the requirements in the declaration, the media needs to maintain precision, professionalism, and fairness in their coverage of election seasons.
