A number of Syrian opposition figures in Cairo announced formation of a new alliance called “The Council of Syrian Revolutionary Trustees” on Tuesday, July 31, and assigned the Council Chairman, Haitham al-Maleh, to form a transitional government in exile.
The new Syrian opposition council challenges the Syrian National Council (SNC), which they say failed to meet the aspirations of the Syrian people.
SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Mahmoud al-Doghaim, member of the Council of Syrian Revolutionary Trustees:
“The office has assigned Mr. Haitham al-Maleh to form a transitional government and he gratefully accepted. He started his consultations with the different sides of the Syrian opposition outside Syria and with the revolutionaries inside Syria to form the cabinet.”

On the other hand, Al-Maleh told reporters at the conference in Cairo, that his alliance urges a no-fly zone in Syria to protect the civilians and does not call for foreign military interference.
Al-Maleh said earlier that the aim of the council was to form a transitional government to avoid a “political and administrative vacuum” in case the regime of Bashar Assad falls.
For his part, SNC Chief Abdel Basset Sayda described the formation of a government in exile as “a hasty move.”
Al-Maleh, 81, is a lawyer and human rights activist who spent several years in the Syrian jails.
