MOSCOW, April 17. /ITAR-TASS/. Syria’s opposition has presented a charter for democratic reforms.
The document should provide “the basis for democratic reforms in Syria”, the opposition said.
“The document describes the future of the country after Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s resignation,” head of the Syrian Center for Political and Strategic Studies Radvan Ziadeh said on Thursday.
“The parliament will govern in Syria. We have to elect a constituent assembly of 290 representatives. Syria is expected to be divided into 62 constituencies and will have a multiparty system,” he said.
The opposition also called for revising the Constitution of 1950 because “this is the only democratic constitution”.
“The charter will comprise six chapters: political transformations, juridical reform, political parties, security agencies reform, national reconciliation and economic transition,” Ziadeh said.
At least 300 experts drafted the charter. “Many people accused the opposition of not having a plan of action. But it has it,” the Syrian National Coalition Ambassador to France, Monzer Makhous, said, adding that “This is not the final version and will be revised.
