Damascus. A majority of 89.4 percent of the Syrians adopted the new Constitution, the cornerstone to legitimize the comprehensive reforms promoted by the government of President Bashar al-Assad.

Interior Minister Mohammad al-Shaar said today at a press conference aroused great expectation, which went to the polls eight million 376 thousand 447 citizens of the 14 million eligible to vote.

This represents a participation in the plebiscite of 57.4 percent.

The major general said that among voters, nine percent reject the draft constitution, while 132 000 920 ballots were invalid, to 1.6 percent.

al-Shaar said that the referendum took place without major problems in the 14 provinces of the country and described the good turnout considering the threats and intimidation by armed groups in some areas.

In this hostile environment is compounded by the intense media campaign of distortion and incitement against Syria who tried to prevent citizens from exercising their free right to vote and thereby harm the democratic process that is driven, reported.

The parliamentarian Akram Hower, deputy to the National Assembly by Hama, told Prensa Latina that the Syrians had the opportunity to vote freely on a draft constitution drawn up to meet the demands of the people.

Hower, National Party member Promise which is located in the internal opposition, he considered the constitutional referendum as “important step towards improving the political, social and economic life.”

President al-Assad said for days that if the referendum was approved then legislative elections would be held to elect a new National Assembly no later than 90 days.

Academics and politicians of the internal opposition and the government agree that these elections take place in the second half of March.

That vote will give way to the formation of a government of national unity, predicted Kadri Jamil, leader of the People’s Will, one of the new ones are in the national opposition.

For Jamil, who was one of the members of the committee that prepared the draft constitution, believes that the proposal will foster political pluralism and democracy in Syria on a balanced basis in which the various forces may participate in the country.
