Press Release by the Ad Hoc Committee for Observing Media Coverage, for the Period 2 – 11 October 2016


Skopje, 19.10.2016 – Media monitoring in the period from 2 to 11 October 2016 showed that the media had made considerable progress in terms of quantitative and qualitative balance in their reporting.

After having looked into the fourth Ten-Day Report on the monitoring of 18 programming services, The Ad Hoc Committee did not file any proposal to impose measures, but wishes to advise the broadcasters to place special accent on the qualitative balance in their reporting.

The Committee expresses pleasure with the general observance of Article 75-b of the Electoral Code in this reporting period, which means that reporting on the state authorities was not used for the purpose of electoral media presentation of any political entity, and encourages the broadcasters to continue in this direction in the future.
