The Syrian Socialist Nationalist Party said Friday it would hold a vote next month to choose a new leader after a party tribunal overturned the re-election of incumbent Asaad Hardan.Hardan was re-elected last month for a third term, despite the SSNP's bylaws restricting the leaders to two terms. After Hardan's election, the higher council held a session to discuss a motion presented by one of the members to amend a paragraph in the bylaws allowing a current head to run for a third term.This overturned the election, effectively stripping Hardan of the party's presidency.
