Parliament urged to reconsider the provisions of the Public Broadcaster Law

Podgorica, (MINA) – The Media Trade Union of Montenegro (SMCG) urged upon the MPs to once again consider the provisions of the Law on the National Public Broadcaster and introduce the amendments that will prevent, as they said, damage that the current text of the Law would inflict if it comes in effect.

“We are all concerned over the entire media scene for what would ensue after the first day of the implementation of such Law”, the press release stated.

They recall that President of Montenegro Jakov Milatovic gave an opportunity to the MPs to once again consider the provisions he found problematic himself.

“We urge them to do so with due diligence”, the press release reads.

SMCG also recalls that the Montenegrin courts judged that Boris Raonic has been illegally appointed to the position of the RTCG director general.

“Therefore, we believe that lowering the criteria for such a candidate would represent an insult to the citizens who elected the MPs, but also the MPs themselves, since thus they would not reach decisions in the public interest but would subordinate them to the personal interest of one man”, the press release concludes.
