Skopje, 7 October 2021 – In the course of monitoring the media coverage of the 2021 Local Elections, the Agency concluded that several television stations had been broadcasting paid political advertising that involves participation of minors.

In accordance with the Electoral Code, the participants in the election campaign are responsible for the content of the statements, announcements, advertisements and other recorded materials that they have ordered; however, broadcasters bear responsibility as well, considering Article 76, Paragraph 3, of the Electoral Code, which stipulates explicitly that participation of minors in paid political advertising is not allowed.
