Eleven candidates apply for RTVS job

Eleven people, including a former head of TV Markiza, Václav Mika, and the current head of the TASR newswire, submitted their applications for the job of general director of the state-owned public broadcaster Radio and Television of Slovakia (RTVS) to parliament’s media and culture committee, TASR reported on July 17.

Eleven people, including a former head of TV Markiza, Václav Mika, and the current head of the TASR newswire, submitted their applications for the job of general director of the state-owned public broadcaster Radio and Television of Slovakia (RTVS) to parliament’s media and culture committee, TASR reported on July 17.

“Eleven envelopes arrived by 16:00 [the deadline] which means there are eleven candidates for the position,” said Dušan Jarjabek, chair of the committee, as quoted by TASR, adding that members will open the envelopes during a public session on July 18 to check that all the necessary requirements have been fulfilled.

Those who meet all the criteria will be allowed to attend another screening set to take place on July 30, Jarjabek said.

The post of RTVS general director has been empty since parliament dismissed Miloslava Zemková at the end of June after the parliamentary media and culture committee accused her of violating the law by failing to inform the RTVS Council, the broadcaster’s governing body, about a tender to rent premises for RTVS.

Zemková criticised the reasons given for her dismissal and has already filed a complaint with the Constitutional Court, TASR wrote.
