Out of 70 percent of Hina’s journalists who gave their opinions, 82 percent of them gave their support to Serđo Obratov.
Fairpress contacted Obratov via telephone; he said that he doesn’t want to say anything in advance, before the official decision of the Steering Council.
I’m grateful to my colleagues for still
supporting me after four years. I hope that I’ll be chosen and that we’ll embark on strengthening the editorial staff and begin the rest of the plans for the next four years, said Obratov.
The opinion of the editorial staff has never been rejected by any Steering Council, which is foreseen to confirm this decision and appoint the editor-in-chief tomorrow, 20 July, at 4 p.m. According to Hina’s reports, Nenad Bach, who ran for director of Hina in May, also applied for the job of editor-in-chief of Hina.
