Waleed Al- Bunni left the Syrian Opposition Coalition and joined those seeking establishing the Democratic Pole which excludes Islamic politics which in turn is distinguished by its ability to organize itself while democratic forces remain scattered because of the dominating political desertification Syria suffered from throughout the last five decades.
Dr. Al- Bunni became today an independent Syrian opposition, after he froze his membership in the National Coalition of Opposition and Revolution Forces, refusing the domination of one side over the coalition, he now works with some Syrian oppositions to form a democratic pole, which includes Syrians who have democratic civil belongings, and which will announced during a meeting on May 15th in Cairo.
Al- Bunniis nominated to go back to the coalition with other withdrawers, but he is a part of the long list which will try to achieve a balance between the forces in the coalition and to include the forces which have never been part of it.
Outside Islamic politics
Al- Bunni told Ilaf that the Democratic Pole is a political target, but without competition with anybody, mentioning that it is well- known that Islamic politics is organized and is able to work, and this is positive in political life, but the negative part comes from the fact that those outside it are scattered and unable to institutionalize their work.
Al- Bunni assured that the objective of the Democratic Pole is to establish an organized entity combining the efforts aside from Islamic politics, the efforts of those who don’t want to be part of its organization, this will empower the internal dialogue and the dialogue with the others.
The least costly solution
Al- Bunni saw that any solution leads to the withdrawal of the regime, with all its basis, and in the same time, leads to stop killing civilians and destroying Syria, should be accepted, either if it was a result of an international initiative, forced by international community on the regime, or it was through arming revolutionary forces to send a direct message to Bashar Al- Assad telling him that he will triumph over his people's will.
Considering conscience initiative, which some Syrian businessmen called for, Al- Bunni saw it confusing "and we don’t discuss what we don’t know, whenever we see a specific initiative, we will give our opinion about it, but the survival and continuity of the regime can never be acceptable".
