Syrian Opposition Groups Unite To Map The Future

Opposition groups in Syria have signed a draft outlining how a democratic government might function in the country if mass protests succeed in driving the country’s president, Bashar al-Assad, from power.

The draft says that: as soon as Assad’s regime falls a “transitional period” would begin by preserving all state institutions and then drafting a new constitution that guarantees a “civilian pluralist parliamentary democratic system”. A new parliament and president would then be elected.
