The heads of professional syndicates said Tuesday that President Mohamed Morsy decided to appoint an official to the presidential office who would represent syndicates and focus on their issues.
Twenty-four heads of professional syndicates met with Morsy Tuesday to discuss syndicates’ problems and how they could contribute to the Renaissance project and other national initiatives, Mohamed Fahmy Tolbah, head of the Scientific Professions Syndicate, told Al-Masry Al-Youm.
The president decided to hold a major conference in three months for the heads of professional syndicates to find solutions to their problems, he added.
Engineers Syndicate head Maged Kholousy said the syndicate heads discussed with Morsy coordination between syndicates and ministries on a number of issues, as well as the drafting of a law that would join all the syndicates into a national union.
Sameh Ashour, head of the Lawyers Syndicate, said that he asked Morsy to remake the Constituent Assembly to ensure fair representation for all political forces.
Ashour said that the meeting also discussed the conflict between lawyers and police that took place in Nasr City a few weeks ago after lawyers attempted to storm the police department there.
