SKOPJE, 26.04.2011 – The Broadcasting Council (BC) will initiate criminal charge against the Public Enterprise Official Gazette and against its responsible person, because of its refusal to publish the by-law acts for media coverage of the elections.

PE Official Gazette has created a vacuum in the media regulation, which had a negative impact on the functioning of BC and the electronic media in the middle of electoral process. This means that the Election Code has been breached, which obliges BC to adopt a Rulebook for Conduct of the Broadcasters in the Period from the Announcement of the Elections until the Start of the Election Campaign and a Rulebook for Equal Representation During Election Campaign, BC adopted these rulebooks within the legal deadline according to the articles 75 and 206 from the Election Code, and the State Election Commission refused to give an opinion about them.
