The Syrian political opposition has reached a dire state of weakness and division. It runs the risk of falling into the entanglements of international relations, and the political process has entered such a stalemate that it now clings to the illusion of the constitutional committee’s ability to find a solution as a last resort.

The Syrian people's insistence on implementing International Resolution No. 2254 according to a specific sequence that starts with drafting a new constitution and calls for fair elections under UN supervision, holds the key to a possible solution that guarantees more security and stability in the future. Such a solution does not exclude or abuse the rights of any of the groups who make up the Syrian people.
