PRESS FREEDOM

A One-Sided Story

Hardnews is covering the fourth general elections since it started publishing in 2003-2004.

Predicting 2009 and 2014 polls were relatively easy to read, but the 2019 election presents a different challenge all together. The threat of violence from an intrusive Surveillance State is cramping the freedom with which the ordinary voters shared their views on politics and the government.
