Supreme Media Council extends deadline for Egypt’s news website licenses

The Supreme Media Council has extended the deadline for submitting applications for news website permits until the end of January, the council said on Thursday. The licenses apply to news websites whose capital exceeds EGP 100k a year under temporary licensing regs the council had issued in October. The regs are only in effect until the executive regulations to the second part of the Press and Media Act — which became law in September — are passed. The council has already approved licenses for 113 websites.
