The first time was on March 5, 2021 for not completing the quorum for holding the “assembly”, the second time was on March 19, 2020 due to the inability to hold elections inside the union building only for what represents unavoidable harm, in the light of COVID-19 pandemic, after the Ministry of Interior refused setting up a marquee in front of the Syndicate, and the Ministry of Health refused to supervise the elections

Despite the diversity of these electoral programs, the Observatory observed, while reading them, a number of negatives, which represented patterns that were repeated in the majority of the announced programs. The most prominent of these negatives were:

The abundance of unrealistic electoral slogans and difficult to achieve, as opposed to the reduction of realistic programmatic points
A number of candidates were not aware of some of the issues raised by the “Observatory” despite its obsession with discussions within the press community what indicates that these journalists are not eligible or qualified to the union work
