Syrian President Bashar Assad issued a law on Thursday allowing a multiparty government system in Syria, according to state-run news agency SANA. 

The Syrian cabinet approved a draft-law on July 24th allowing the formation of political parties other than the ruling Ba’ath party, provided they adhere to “democratic principles.”

The development of the draft-law comes during nationwide protests for political reform.

“The establishment of any party has to be based on ... a commitment to the constitution, democratic principles, the rule of law and a respect for freedom and basic rights,” the SANA agency said, referring to conditions to be met by parties that want to apply for a license to operate legally.
