Association for Media Development In South Sudan (AMDISS) was formed in 2003 before the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) of 2005.
AMDISS was formed by South Sudanese journalists in
the diaspora who are editors and owners of the leading media outlets for the then Southern Sudan, it started as a network through the internet/emails and it is a membership based organization.
"After listening to all discussions today, it has become clear that this discourse served as an eye-opener for all of us, especially media managers.
As a media advocacy organization, we organized this to prepare for the Elections."
Ms. Ayaa Irene, AMDISS' Director
Onziga Simon, a Radio Presenter for Radio Pacis in Arua District, Uganda, highlights the importance of collaborating with the Electoral Commission to enhance media coverage during elections.

Effective collaboration & coordination among media outlets during election reporting is crucial.
Sharing materials like audio recordings or press releases with other news outlets expand information availability & ensure broader audiences are informed.

Media has a responsibility to ensure gender-balanced reporting, maintain impartial coverage, & not favor any candidate or party.
Accreditation for election reporting should not deter journalists from covering elections, but rather make it easier during elections.
