Media Laws proposed by the AJM and SSNM fail to pass in Parliament

MPs failed to get their draft law proposal for media reforms passed, the draft-law, which was submitted by the SDSM, but proposed by the AJM and the Union of Journalists and Media workers (SSNM).

The draft-law was modeled on proposals made by negotiator Peter Vanhoutte.

The draft-law envisaged reforms in areas such as the Programming Control of MRT, and in the Agency for Media Council, as well as the financing of MRT, which is, at present, funded 100% from the state budget.
