Media coverage not unbiased, international and local media monitors say Print E-mail
16.04.2014 Transparency International Macedonia (TIM), an independent, non-profit organization that promotes the values of freedom and democracy, has been systematically monitoring the media coverage of the April presidential and early parliamentary elections. This monitoring is a part of the project that has been conducted in cooperation with a UK-based Electoral Reform International Services (ERIS) and a Slovak media-monitoring organization MEMO 98, funded by the European Union, under the European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights.

“The main goal of the project is to assist our media to play a more constructive and responsible role in the development of democracy” said Slagjana Taseva of TIM. “We would like to offer them international experience in developing impartial and objective reporting practices through a series of targeted trainings. We also hope that our monitoring will initiate a discussion on professional standards,” added Taseva.   

“Our monitoring showed that the monitored media in general did not provide objective and balanced coverage of the campaign,” said Rasto Kužel, media monitoring expert from MEMO 98. “Journalists need to be more proactive rather than reactive in their coverage of elections to better facilitate the exchange of opinions, public debate, investigation and commentary that would offer the public fully informed, analyzed and assessed views of persons seeking elected office.”
Corruption Perceptions Index 2013 Print E-mail
cpi2013_easterneuropeandcentralasia.jpg 03.12.2013 “Corruption remains an issue of high priority for the Republic of Macedonia. The result of this year on Corruption Perceptions Index 2013 is almost identical with the result of last year (43: 44 index points) and suggests that there is a slowdown in the improvement of the situation in this sphere.
It is obvious that the actions taken by the government are insufficient and institutions are ineffective. Deficiencies in the rule of law estimate a serious distrust on the citizens in the judiciary and parliament, as institutions that should provide assurance in the rule of law, protection of the public interest and state prosperity. The institutions have not provided sufficient guarantee that those who are responsible for corruption and unlawful work will not enjoy protection and impunity. "Untouchability on the responsible people for corruption in everyday life needs to be eradicated,” said the professor Dr. Slagjana Taseva, president of Transparency International Macedonia on the occasion of the announcement of the results of the CPI for 2013.

"They don't even want to have the discussion" Governments battle over openness at UN AC meeting Print E-mail

uncac-coalition.jpg 29.11.2013 As a UN anti-corruption summit comes to a close today, governments are battling over whether UN anti-corruption meetings should be open to NGO observers. “This was an occasion for all those opposing corruption to come together and consolidate, but a small group of determined countries are still keeping NGO observers out of important discussions. This weakens the international community’s global anti-corruption efforts, because NGO expertise is missing.” said Vincent Lazatin of the UNCAC Coalition.

An initiative by Switzerland and Norway to put the issue on the agenda of the next UN anti- corruption summit in St. Petersburg in 2015 is currently under discussion in plenary session at the UN meeting and is overwhelmingly supported by countries, but with a small group opposing it.



"Skopje 2014": At least eight million Euros could have been saved Print E-mail
 skopje_2014.jpg29.11.2013 The procedures for making monuments in the project "Skopje 2014" that were realized through the “Centar” municipality are conducted with serious violations of the Law on Public Procurement, and eight million euros could have been saved only from monuments, if the most reasonable offers were chosen.

These are some of the conclusions of the second audit report for the project "Skopje 2014" that the municipality has ordered from the anticorruption experts Sladjana Taseva and Dragan Malinovski.

According to Malinovski, all tenders ranging from those monuments of Goce Delchev and Dame Gruev, to the ASNOM monument were won by two Italian firms “Fonderia Aristica Fernanndo Marinelli” and “Petro Bazzanti”.
