Provisional Government of Syrian opposition has elected Prime Minister

2013-03-19 13:37

On the night of March 19, in Istanbul, the opposition Syrian National Coalition (National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces) elected Prime Minister of the provisional government. Hasan Hitto is an Islamic activist, IT-manager, who has lived in the United States for a few dozen years, where he received education. In November 2012, he moved from Texas to Turkey to help to the population in the territories controlled by the opposition, the Izvestia reported.


As it turned out, a programmer from the United States suits both the Islamist and liberal wings of the opposition. His rival in the vote was a former Agriculture Minister Mustafa Assad, who worked in the Syrian government in the days of Hafez al-Assad, father of the current president. But, in spite of his managerial experience he has received only seven votes.

The vote on the issue took place on March 18, at a conference in Istanbul. For the post there were nominated 12 people, including technocrats, businessmen and economists. Hitto has received 35 votes out of possible 62 votes. According to sources, Hitto has mainly received the votes of Islamists, the IA Regnum reported.

Hitto is the second Kurdish oppositionist after the head of the Syrian National Council Abdulbasid Seid, who has taken the senior position in the ranks of the Syrian opposition.
