CAIRO: The Journalists’ Syndicate council decided during a five-hour meeting on Sunday to amend the syndicate’s regulations to include requiring Arabic and English exams for journalists applying for membership, and a requirement for prospective members to complete computer courses.

The council also decided to create unemployment benefits for member journalists at new newspapers. The syndicate set 150,000 EGP for daily and 75,000 EGP for weekly newspapers, and 30,000 EGP for monthly newspapers as a deposit to benefit journalists working in the new facilities.
