Political, media situation not good in Serbia, MEP tells Belgrade daily Izvor: N1

Tanja Fajon MEP told Belgrade the Tuesday issue of Belgrade daily Danas that the political and media scenes in Serbia ar far from ideal.

She said that the political situation in Serbia cannot be said to be idyllic, adding that attention has to be focused on the authorities’ attitude towards the media and the opposition. Fajon, who heads the European Parliament’s Delegation to the EU-Serbia Stabilisation and Association Parliamentary Committee, added that “the media scene in Serbia is far from ideal”.  

“We can say that the current situation in the media is polarized. There are certain media, both print and electronic, that are not free and serve to place information from only one side,”she said. According to Fajon, it’s important to know where the money comes from as well as the ownership of the media.  

Commenting on the possibility of European Parliament mediation in talks between the Serbian authorities and opposition on improving election conditions, she said that the goal of that mediation would be to normalize the situation, make election conditions equal for all and bring the talks to a politically correct place like parliament. She said there is a chance that she could be part of the European Parliament delegation to mediate in those talks.
