Egypt’s President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi is scheduled to meet with a number of the country’s journalists and intellectuals on Tuesday morning.

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.
