According to the Angolan Public Television (TPA) journalist, in statements to ANGOP, it is urgent to revise the current Press Law, as a specific legal instrument to regularize the journalistic activity in the country, in order to establish an adequate legal framework for the exercise of this profession.

He argued that, although it is new, the legal instrument still falls short of efficiently responding to the requirements of the proper exercise of the journalistic profession, as it does not fit into the reality of the country.
