New Reactions to Ramadani Incident during Kanal 5 TV Debate Show

Reactions to the incident involving Euro-Atlantic Council President and ex-MP Ismet Ramadani, Kanal 5 Director Ivan Mircevski, and journalist Aleksandar Vidinovski have continued.

On Thursday, VMRO-DPMNE leader Hristijan Mickoski expressed support for the TV station. According to him, Ramadani’s verbal attack on Vidinovski was ruthless.

“It’s normal to expect people running that medium to react. In my view, the reaction that followed is expected. Huge support for the medium,” Mickoski said.

On the other hand, SDSM said that VMRO-DPMNE shouldn’t “politicise” the matter.

“DPMNE is the party that captured the whole state and brought media freedoms to the bottom. That time is over. Media today are free, work and report freely in a democratic society, while media freedom is at an all-time high. DPMNE brought down media freedom, SDSM brought it back,” the ruling party said.
