“We could have changed the politics and the whole set in MRT, as it was the trend before, but at a time when we are talking about reforms, among which the most important are the media reforms, that should happen with the reforms. Zaev or SDSM should not appoint a director or editors there”, last night Prime Minister Zoran Zaev said on the TV show “Open” at the “TV 24 “, when asked why the reforms in MRT are late.

He says the reforms should lead to the experts to set up the managerial and editorial team of the national broadcaster.

“With the reforms, it will come naturally the expert’s set up and it will reach both, the management team and the editorial team, etc”, the Prime Minister explained further.

When asked when the first steps could be expected, he said he believed that this would happen by the end of this year.

“The law is already in an open debate, in which the unions also participate … I know that this debate must be short and long enough to be transparent for all indications. I know that already there have been 17 suggestions for the draft law in the AVMU, which is part of the whole reform. I believe that by the end of this year there will be realization of such legal solutions”, Zaev said.
