Last week, the Ministry of Information Society and Administration (MISA) approved the new systematization of job positions at the Macedonian Radio Television (MRT), proposed by MRT’s Program Council. The Program Council’s Vice President, Vedat Memedalija, said that the new systematization was signed by MISA’s State Secretary, Adem Avziu and it plans an increase of new employees in the public broadcasting service from the current 764 to 1.224 employees.
