Media pluralism, diversity of opinion and the capacity to tackle major issues have been developing in Seychelles media over the past decade or so.
Since the introduction of the multiparty politics, the practice of self-censorship has slowly dissipated. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) says that state-owned media outlets no longer shy away from criticising the government or from reporting on corruption.
In October 2021, the national assembly decriminalized defamation.
BBC World Service (106.2 MHz) and Radio France Internationale are available on FM.
There were 71,000 internet users by December 2021, comprising 72% of the population (Worldinternetstats.com).
