The media deserve congratulations for the way the followed the elections, although in general there was no media outlet, which in a certain way did not violate the Broadcasting Law (the obligation for fair, balanced and impartial coverage of the elections in their total programme, Article 80 paragraph 2) or from the Election Code (the obligation to ensure equal access in the representation of the candidates, Article 75 paragraph 1).

The conclusions of the monitoring and all other documents related to the media reporting in period of elections 2006, are available here (Macedonian version only).



2005 – Local elections

The monitoring of the media coverage in the first round of the local elections 2005 showed that the biggest political parties and coalitions were most represented in all forms of media coverage.

Mayoral candidates and holders of lists were the most represented in the PBS programming on a national level. As regards the commercial media, the organizers of election campaign were present mostly in the paid political advertising. Here belong also the paid political interviews, which according to the Decision were not allowed to be used, because in that manner the media put their journalist capacities in service of the political parties.

In the second round, the field campaign, which was with less intense, was followed with larger scale by the PBS (Macedonian Television and Macedonian Radio). The commercial radio and TV stations mainly reported about the press-conferences of the political entities involved in the campaign.

The conclusions and other documents and details from the monitoring, are here.  (Macedonian version only).

 



2004 – Presidential elections

In general, the electronic media allowed to the electorate to follow the campaign of all presidential candidates and to inform about their political program in details. The general impression is that the media, especially the commercial, are more resistant to political pressures and show higher degree of editorial independence and professionalism.

Such a conclusion can be drawn for the national service on a national level, which is specific for this election campaign, unlike every previous. This can’t be concluded about the public broadcasting services on a local level, where the impact of political and economic power is still present.
