Syrian opposition boycotts Al-Assad’s referendum

In Syria, the referendum on the constitution took place yesterday. In it, the regime led by Bashar Al-Assad offered a multiparty system, in a model that allows the current President to stay in office for more two seven year terms. If this seems a positive sign of openness, it is also understandable the opposition’s aspiration that the President steps down immediately: if his regime continue to bombard the population as it has done in the last 11 months, in 2028 no one will be left to join other parties.
