Syria's Assad 'drawing up new government'

Leaks after sworn in for 4th seven-year presidential term

21 July, 18:19

    BEIRUT - A few days after Bashar al-Assad was sworn in for his fourth seven-year presidential term, which will run until 2028, Syrian media on Wednesday reported that a decree may be issued soon for a new government under current Education Minister Imad Azab.

    State-run news agency SANA has not yet confirmed the news but several other media and social media accounts have reported it.

    Syria is a presidential republic that has been run for half a century by an authoritarian regime under the Assad family.

    For this reason, the executive power in Syria has very little power compared with that in the hands of the state.

    The Syrian government has been under Hussein Arnus since September 2020.

    The creation of a new government in Syria often coincides with the president's desire to give a message of 'change' and show that there will be 'reforms' to 'fight corruption'.
