General elections for most of its institutions will be held, as well as determining the position of the declaration towards current political developments.
Regarding the position of the Damascus Declaration towards the political movement, Biqai said: “The Damascus Declaration carried the spring of change to the heart of Syria in 2005, and it still has a strong presence because of its credibility at home and abroad.”
