Iyad al-Khatib: constitution cannot be drafted without representatives of 7 m people

Iyad al-Khatib, a member of the General Council of the Syria Future Party, stressed that no constitution can be drafted in Syria if the representatives of all regions of Syria do not participate. "The population of the north and east of Syria is more than 7.5 million. According to the international law, the constitution cannot be drafted in the absence of such a number in the country. "

The Syrian arena has witnessed many political and military changes over the past 8 years, and the Syrian crisis, which has claimed thousands of Syrian people's lives as a result of the intolerance of terrorist groups and the regime's repressive and exclusionary policies against the Syrian people, has prolonged.

More recently, the UN Council has sought to set up a committee to draft the constitution, representing all the Syrian people, but this has not been applied in practice.

Iyad al-Khatib, a member of the General Council of the Future Syria Party, said: “The crises in the region throughout Syria will continue if there is no political solution.” After the resignation of former UN envoy to Syria, Stefan de Mistura, his successor Geir Pederson worked on constitutional committees composed of 150 members comprising 50 political figures from the Syrian regime, 50 political figures from the Syrian opposition and 50 selected by the United Nations have not been declared before.”

Khatib explained that the solution to the Syrian crisis is a political one, pointing out that a constitution must be drafted to suit all the people of Syria, respect for the few components, in addition to preserving the blood of the martyrs who sacrificed for their country.

At the end of his speech, Khatib stressed "we do not acknowledge any constitution adopted by the Syrian regime and others, we are the future Syria party, and consider it as null and void according to the laws of the UN Security Council."
