Skopje, 14 December 2016 – Based on the written reports on monitoring the coverage of the elections by the Makedonska Radiotelevizija Skopje – Makedonska televizija – First Programming Service (MRT1), and HDTV Kanal Plus DOOEL Skopje, the Ad Hoc Committee for Observing Media Coverage submitted Action Proposals to the Agency for Audio and Audiovisual Media Services.

The Ad Hoc Committee submitted a proposal to initiate a misdemeanour procedure, upon which the court would pronounce a misdemeanour sanction in the form of fine, against Makedonska Radiotelevizija Skopje – Makedonska televizija – First Programming Service (MRT1). As regards HDTV Kanal Plus DOOEL Skopje, it submitted a proposal to impose a misdemeanour sanction in the form of warning.

The Ad Hoc Committee’s proposals were submitted due to violations of Article 76-b, Paragraph 3 of the Electoral Code on the part of both broadcasters, as they had aired a statement by an office holder employed in a government body during the election silence.
