As reported by RBC.ru, February 26, in Syria, a referendum on a draft new constitution, which should become the basis for further reforms, as well as parliamentary and presidential elections. The Syrian authorities called this referendum successful.

According to Syrian Interior Minister Mohammad Al-Shaar, the voting process on the adoption of a new constitution was normal in most regions of the country; the citizens took an active part in the referendum and, ultimately, the turnout was large enough.

At the same time, Syrian Ministry of Information stated that the counting of votes would be carried out later.

According to the Lenta.ru, the main difference between the new constitution from the acting constitution is a new version of the eighth article, which states the dominant position of the Party "Baas", headed by Syrian President Bashar Assad. The new constitution will provide equal opportunities for all the political parties of Syria.

The uprising was accompanied by clashes betwenn the army and the opposition. According to human rights organizations, more than 7,500 people were killed in Syria for 11 months.
