Update: Cyprus answers to CyBC / MAD TV crisis
NICOSIA, CYPRUS – There is a bit turmoil in the relations of Cyprus national broadcaster and MAD TV Cyprus regarding the preparations for the national selection, a marathon show announced earlier this summer. It seems that MAD TV Cyprus accuses CyBC for delays regarding the planning of the show.
What happens now? Until October 10th, CyBC will decide how they will proceed with the national selection and they do leave open the option to withdraw from Eurovision 2015! There is also the option to proceed with an internal selection and cancelling the national selection marathon, a rule which was mentioned in the announcement of the national selection.
The meeting for the final decision is set for this week. We really hope that reasoning will prevail in the end! and we also hope our sources were wrong in the information given above.
CyBC’s Kleitos Kelitou posted on Facebook a message to clear things. First he attacks the sites and blogs (obviously us as no one else reported that) for causing crisis out of nothing and clarified that national final will take place by CyBC with detailed information coming in soon.
