REUTERS - The main opposition Syrian National Council (SNC) outlined on Friday its vision for a post-Bashar al-Assad Syria, proposing an interim presidential council of national leaders and a truth and reconciliation committee.
In a copy of his speech, SNC leader Burhan Ghalioun called for the continuation of the uprising until Assad was ousted or handed over power as per an Arab League plan.
After that, Ghalioun called for the “formation of a presidential council composed of national leaders and the formation of a transitional government of political, military and technocratic figures who have not fought against the revolution.”
He also proposed the creation of a council that would address the abuses of the Assad regime and prevent any political or sectarian reprisals.
“The committee will work to reconcile and restore the sense of nationalism and human values that have been lacking during this crisis,” he said.
The transitional period would end with elections to a parliament that would draw up a new constitution.
