Syria's armed opposition distributed a "national salvation draft" proposal Monday (July 30th) outlining a political transition in the country, AFP reported.
The Free Syrian Army prepared the draft which calls for a higher defence council that would be responsible for creating a presidential council, which in turn would bring together a total of six military and civilian figures to lead a future transition.
The proposal "meets all the revolution's demands", according to the Military Council Joint Command, based in Homs.
The higher defence council would include "all military council leaders in Syria's cities and provinces, as well as all the high-profile defected officers and others who have contributed to the revolution", the joint command said in a statement.
The presidential council's responsibilities would be "to submit draft laws for a referendum and to restructure the security and military apparatus," the joint command said. "The minister of presidential affairs should be a civilian appointed by the revolution's military wing."
The Free Syrian Army described the draft as a "road map that can be accepted by all parties on the path to liberation and independence, and the building of a new Syria".
