Syria parliament election 90 days after new constitution

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Syria will hold parliamentary elections within 90 days of the approval of a draft constitution which is being put to a referendum on February 26, state television said on Wednesday.

According to official state media the draft constitution would establish a multi-party system in Syria, which has been ruled by President Bashar al-Assad’s Baath Party for nearly half a century.
