In its Press Freedom Index, Reporters Without Borders classified the media environment in Eritrea at 178 out of 178, the lowest possible rating. Eritrea is run by the People's Front for Democracy and Justice (PFDJ)- other political groups are not allowed to organize, although the unimplemented Constitution of 1997 provides for the existence of multi-party politics. According to the BBC, "Eritrea is the only African country to have no privately-owned news media... Not a single [foreign correspondent] now lives in Asmara." Independent media has been banned since 2001.
