JPA’s new law to increase number of syndicate’s members

: Thursday, August 14 - 2014 @ 10:29

JPA President Tareq Momani said that the recently endorsed amendments to the Jordan Press Association (JPA) Law will help increase the number of the syndicate’s members and introduce major changes to the way its president is elected, Zawya reported. The new law, which went into effect mid-July, allows those working at news websites, radio stations and private satellite channels to become members of the association after this was restricted in the previous law, Momani told reporters. The JPA has some 1,100 members at present. The amended law mandates that all new association members should be holders of at least a bachelor’s degree or a diploma in journalism and media. Those with degrees below the General Secondary Certificate Examination level who have been working for eight years as journalists have a three-month deadline to submit a request to the association to become members provided that they present documents proving they have been working in the profession, Momani said.
