【新聞局長準備回巢TDM所以唔答TDM質詢? ——Home-coming of the Director of GCS to TDM Silences the Present Authority from Replying to Written Interpellation about TDM?】

澳廣視職程改制風波。自電視台高層廢除兩份原方案(一般及管理人員),並指定新成立工作小組於6月尾提交新方案,至今未有任何公開下文。白主席答覆我在5月提出的質詢,則強調改制其中旨在「保障既得權利」。

不過,更值得注意的是,我在質詢直問政府會否確立TDM作為公共廣播機構的法定地位及其權利和義務,參照聯合國文件對公共廣播服務的指標,確保編採獨立原則,並設立公眾問責和監察的工具和機制?官方給我的答覆居然隻字不答。

事實上,政府早已委派新聞局長陳致平進入TDM董事會,藉以監察這家公帑營運的電視台,現在連質詢也不答,請問監察去咗邊?一直盛傳掌控新聞局20年的陳致平即將卸任(由賀一誠競選辦成員、澳門日報副總編輯曾藝接任),之後回巢TDM執委會主席,如果政府少些監察,對自己的將來也有利?

Disputes over the reform of TDM’s personnel regulations. Since the top bodies of TDM abrogated the two original amendment proposals (regarding general and management personnel) and appointed a new working group to submit a new proposal at the end of June, no further relevant news have been made public. In response to my written interpellation filed in May, TDM’s President Manuel Pires only emphasized that the reform was aimed at “guaranteeing vested rights.”

However, it is more worth noting that, in the written interpellation, I questioned whether the Government would establish the legal status of TDM as a public broadcaster and its rights and obligations, with reference to the standards set forth in the UN documents on public broadcasting services, to ensure the principle of editorial independence and establish a public accountability and supervisory tool or mechanism. In the official reply, not even a single word was given to address my question.

In fact, the Government has already appointed the Director of GCS, Victor Chan Chi Peng, as a board member of TDM to supervise this television station operated by public fund. Now, it even will not answer the interpellation of a legislator. Where has the supervision been?

Victor Chan, who has been in control of the News Bureau for 20 years, is about to step down (and will be succeeded by Zeng Yi, member of Ho Iat Seng’s campaign office and deputy editor-in-chief of the Macao Daily), and then returns to TDM and acts as the President of the Executive Committee. If the Government receives less supervision, it will be beneficial to its future governance, don’t you agree?
