They arrived at 14.30 the resignation en bloc of the government of Mohammed Naji al-Ottar, in office since 2003. But the wait is above all to the speech of President Bashar al-Assad by tomorrow expected to announce a series of openings, starting with the lifting of the state of emergency in force for 48 years and the reform of the law on political parties and the means of 'information.

Meanwhile in Damascus and in many other cities in the Syrian regime has resulted in tens of thousands of supporters square with national flags and posters of Assad. The TV gave ample space for rallies to what has been dubbed as the 'Day of loyalty to the nation'. Although Monday was no lack of violence with Syrian security forces who opened fire in Dera on hundreds of demonstrators chanting in favor of repealing the Emergency Law, in force since 1963.

The authorities in recent days have accused the Islamists to exacerbate the sectarian divide already very strong in Syria, but the Shiite-majority country with a large community of Christians, Druze and Alawite. Saturday to release the tension, the government freed over 250 political prisoners, the majority of whom are Islamists from the military prison Saydnâya.

All of these measures would suggest that a loosening of the power of the Baath party and possibly the same Assad, who controlled the country with an iron fist dubbed "the kingdom of silence". Bahrain. The Parliament of Bahrain haaccettato the resignation of 11 of the 18 members of al-Wefaq, the largest opposition party that sits in the Assembly consists of 40 members.

"I appeal to those who ask others to leave," it's your turn to leave the country, "said the President referring to his detractors, in an address assigned by the agency official information 'Saba'.

Saleh, in power for 32 years, he then accused the parliamentary opposition of wanting to take power, "shedding the blood of young people. All have conspired to overthrow the government - he added - al-Qaeda, the Houthis (the Shiite rebels, ed) and the separatists. " "Those who want power should await the outcome of the polls - he concluded - if people will give them confidence, we will give the power in their hands."
