MANAMA: The General Assembly of the Gulf Press Union on Saturday chose Khalid Al-Malik as its new chief.
Al-Malik, editor-in-chief of the Saudi newspaper of Al-Jazirah and chairman of the Saudi Journalists Commission, replaces Turki Al-Sudeiri, who requested to leave his post for health reasons.
Issa Al-Shajyi was chosen as the Gulf Press Union’s secretary-general, succeeding Naser Al-Othman.
The elections came during the union’s ninth general assembly meeting that was held in the Bahraini capital of Manama in the presence of Minister of Information Affairs Ali Mohammed Al-Rumaihi and the members of the union’s general assembly.
Before the start of the conference, the general assembly members met with Bahraini Prime Minister Prince Khalifa Bin Salman.
