Egypt’s President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi is scheduled to meet with a number of the country’s journalists and intellectuals on Tuesday morning.
The president extended the invitation on Monday to at least 30 people, whose specialisations range from politics to art,
Some of the invited include political analyst Abdallah El-Sennawy, former head of the Journalists Syndicate Diaa Rashwan, arts critic Gaber Assfour, novelist Youssef El-Kaaed, and screenwriter Waheed Hamed.
The meeting will present a platform for the group to discuss their grievances with the president, while El-Sisi will outline the state's recent development efforts.
El-Sisi met twice before with a group of writers and intellectuals, once during his presidential campaign in May 2014 and again in December 2014.
