SY Parliament


The building with the ornate facade housing the unicameral People's Council "Majlis al-Sha'ab" draws on elements from Abbasid and Fatimid architecture. Until 2012 Syria was constitutionally a single-party state, ruled by Assad's Baath party, and elections in 2012 were held among open warfare and boycotted by the opposition. A coalition of opposition forces aiming to replace Bashar al-Assad's government has formed an interim government.
