Skopje, 29 August 2016 (MIA) - The Temporary Committee for Monitoring Media Reporting during elections will resume consultations in yet another attempt to appoint its fifth member. Its four members, appointed by the VMRO-DPMNE and SDSM parties, have failed once again Monday to agree on the fifth one, an ethnic Albanian, who should be elected by consensus.
"Consultations will resume. All options are open. However I believe we will come to a solution by 31 August,' Committee member Goran Trpenovski told reporters.
This Committee, which operates through the Agency for Audio and Audiovisual Media Services (AVMU), is supposed to make binding decisions on whether the Agency should take to court media outlets who report in an unfair or biased manner. Its creation was agreed by the four largest parties in their latest political agreement.
The Committee's next meeting is scheduled for tomorrow at 12:00h. lk/15:15
