President of the Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC), Salem Al-Meslet, on Wednesday visited the office of the Association of Syrian Revolutionary Youth in Azaz, Rural Aleppo.
Al-Meslet talked about the reforms that the SOC has recently introduced by making major amendments to its by-law, terminating the membership of some members, and replacing representatives of local councils.
Al-Meslet clarified the mechanism that the SOC relied on, starting with the formation of a committee to study the by-law, discussing the suggestions put forward by the political committee, and finally voting on the amendments at a General Assembly meeting. He stressed the need for the SOC to be a true representative of all the Syrian people and Syria’s social components.
Al-Meslet pointed out that the reform process is not over, but rather is a continuous process as new effective components will be co-co-opted. He added that the SOC needs to inject new blood and co-opt as many youth, women, displaced people, and refugees as possible.
He stressed the important role of youth and women in the Syrian Revolution, adding that the SOC is keen to co-opt young people as well as youth associations and groupings in order to ensure real participation in the political activities and decision-making.
Al-Meslet also said that the reform process will also cover the political process in order to achieve the Syrian people’s demands for freedom, dignity and democracy, reaffirming the SOC’s commitment to the goals of the Revolution until the downfall of the Assad regime.
