The head of the Journalists Syndicate, Diaa Rashwan, has said that a 25 percent increase in the allowance given to its members will be applied as of May.

With the increase added, the allowance is expected to reach EGP 2,100 per month, Rashwan said in a statement reported by MENA news agency.

Rashwan thanked all who had helped secure the needed resources to apply the increase.

Former head of the State Information Service Rashwan won the position as head of the Journalists Syndicate last March.

As part of his campaign, he vowed to improve the financial conditions of journalists and increase their monthly technology allowance. 

Rashwan affirmed that Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly and Minister of Finance Mohamed Maait had already agreed to increase the allowance by 25 per cent in July.
