As far as the presidential vacuum is concerned, it appears that no one is truly respecting the Constitution, with each sect attempting to mold it accordingly, in an attempt to gain the upper hand. This process is also seemingly shaped not just by local powers in the country, but by their foreign patrons outside. From senior politicians to more minor characters, the voices of those parties aligned to the Assad government, including some Christian parties, are getting louder.To not dismiss politicians as inconsequential figures, but as actors whose cynical manipulation of the system, unfortunately, affects everyone's lives.
