Head of the Syrian Interim Government (SIG), Abdurrahman Mustafa, stressed the importance of the reforms that the SOC has put in place, noting that many revolutionary bodies, unions and local councils in the liberated areas have long demanded to join the SOC.
Mustafa was speaking at a press conference that the SOC held on Friday to talk about the political process and to clarify the reform measures that the SOC introduced to membership and bylaws.
The conference was also attended by SOC’s President Salem al-Meslet, Secretary-General Haitham Rahma, Secretary of the political committee Abdul Majeed Barakat, a number of members of the political committee, and coordinators of committees, departments and offices.
Mustafa pointed out that four local councils sent letters through the Ministry of Local Administration to the SOC requesting the replacement of their representatives, namely the local councils in Deir Ezzor, Aleppo, Idlib and Raqqa. He added that the SOC’s President Salem Al-Maslat responded positively to these requests.
He pointed out that in the period to come, the SOC will focus on the provincial councils and ensure that all the 14 provinces are adequately represented to strengthen the SOC’s representation of all the Syrian people.
Mustafa indicated that although the reform process took a lot of time, it will have a major role in unifying the SOC’s institutions and representing all the active components in the liberated areas. He said that this will have a positive impact on the relationship between the SOC and the Syrian Interim Government and the Syrian people.
Mustafa added that the Syrian Revolution is going through very difficult circumstances at all levels, pointing out that the reform process is necessary to meet these challenges, and must be followed by other steps.
