Staffan de Mistura, the UN envoy for Syria, withdrew the proposal to form a consultative mechanism on the Syrian constitution, which he proposed for Syria talks in Geneva, according to Al Arabiya sources.
De Mistura presented a paper proposing the formation of a team of civil society activists and technocrats to pave the way for the drafting of a new constitution on the second day of the sixth round of the Geneva 6 talks.
According to opposition sources, the document states a consultative mechanism that works on specific legal visions, as well as ensuring that there is no constitutional or legal gaps at any time during the negotiated political transition process.
The opposition official delegation in Geneva said the document was not on the agenda and that there are many reservations about it.
