Commissioner Hahn: Quality Reporting Vital for Making Proper Choices

Less than two weeks ahead of the referendum in Skopje EU Enlargement Commissioner Johannes Hahn said the quality reporting is vital for citizens to be able to make proper choice based on relevant information. “This specific political context can serve as example why quality information is so important. I think that all media should intensify the joint efforts to inform about the factual content of the name deal and the consequences from the vote of citizens as well as to raise the awareness of viewers and readers of the importance to use their democratic right to vote,” said Hahn at the opening of the Conference on media freedom of the Western Balkans in Skopje, funded by the EC.
