ISLAMABAD—The government is about to launch a new law by combining all media regulators for regulating the media.
Reports say the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA), Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA), and Press Council of Pakistan (PCP) will be merged. The new regulatory body is likely to be named Pakistan Media Development Authority.
