Journalist Rewshen Qasim: The adoption of a parliamentary system eliminates the risk of the rule of one person, family or sect

Activist and journalist Rewshen Qasim said that the constitution is the highest legal document in the framework of modern countries, and it is the most sophisticated type of political contract. The importance of writing or drafting a constitution comes, because it is the only guarantor of the rights of minorities, women and children.

Qasim’s speech came during her participation via the “Zoom” in the second dialogue session held by the Ezdina Organization within the project “A Constitution That Protects Us”, at Ezdina’s office in the city of Qamishlo/Qamishli, in the presence of young women and men and civic activists.

Qasim added that the main points that must be focused on in drafting a new constitution for Syria, in addition to the basic articles related to the form of government and the source of legislation, is to know whether the constitution to be drawn up is permanent or temporary.

Qasim indicated that the articles that will be focused on in the constitution must be adopted in the permanent constitution, in addition to a clause ensuring that these articles are not subject to amendment in the future, especially with regard to the rights of minorities.

Qasim stressed that the constitution must guarantee peaceful coexistence between the Syrian components, noting that stability and security cannot be achieved without reaching civil peace and peaceful coexistence.

Qasim explained that the Syrian war has caused a demographic change in a large number of Syrian regions due to regional policies and agendas and the interventions of regional countries with the aim of continuing the conflict for a long time, thus the impossibility of achieving any political stability that guarantees the intervention of these countries in Syria.

Qasim added that achieving the concept of peaceful coexistence needs a constitutional article that has a time limit for implementation and is not lacking in validity, and the constitution must include an article on the normalization of conditions, which means treating the changes that have occurred in the demographic composition in the areas that have become conflict areas between the indigenous population and settlers.

Qasim indicated that the second point that must be focused on is to put in place an article on the women's quota in parliament, i.e. the percentage of women's representation in parliament, and the separation of religion from the state and that Islamic law is not a main source of enactment of laws, especially since Syria is considered a multi-ethnic, national, religious and sectarian country.

With regard to the political aspect and the nature of the state, Qasim believes that adopting a parliamentary system is better in order to low the risk of returning the rule of one person, family or sect, in which the government is accountable to the parliament, and derives its legitimacy and power from the parliament.
