Web portals in FYROM to be put under scrutiny

Web portals will now be a new target group of the Agency for Audio and Audiovisual Media Services in FYROM.

Emilija Janevska, representative of this media regulatory body, said that web portals have always caused problems by breaking electoral silence in election periods. According to her, they are not held accountable and more scrutiny is needed in their activity.

“Our agency is aiming to draft a suitable bill for web portals and to review the provisions of the Electoral Code regarding media”, she says.

The new media law two years ago didn’t include web portals and authorities seem to have been made aware now on the problems that this unregulated part may cause. /balkaneu.com/
