The Syrian government has submitted a list of names to the United Nations as candidates for inclusion in a constitutional committee, U.N. envoy Staffan de Mistura told Reuters Monday. Formation of the committee, which will rewrite the Syrian constitution, was agreed at a Syrian peace conference in the Russian ski resort of Sochi in January. De Mistura's spokeswoman Reem Ismail said the U.N. was carefully studying the list of names but declined to comment further.Control over the constitutional process has been a key point of conflict between President Bashar Assad's government, and the international community and the Syrian opposition.
