The Syrian National Council (SNC) has rejected the international plan for regime change in Syria because current Syrian President Bashar Assad would have the right to participate in the agreement.
At a conference in Geneva this past weekend, the UN brokered “deal” for the “creation of a transitional national unity government” made the illusion to executive powers given to Syria. Russian representatives asserted that Assad should be part of the interim administration.
The ultimate transitional government would also oversee the drafting of a new Syrian Constitution and advise the electoral process.
The international community, headed by the UN has agreed to devise a scheme to remove Assad from the Syrian government and chose his successor by “mutual consent”. Several opposition groups in Syria are vying for representatives that might replace Assad.
Bassma Kodmani, spokesperson for the SNC states that the agreement is not assertive enough and lacks clear mechanisms for the regime change. Kodmani claims that the use of the UN Security Council (UNSC) during the “transition” should not be led by Assad.
Kodmani, who was a participant in the recent Bilderberg meeting in Chantilly, Virginia, has been pushing for an armed attack on Syria.
