According to the Syrian state news agency SANA the cabinet of Prime Minister Mohammad Naji Otri tended its resignation, which was accepted by President Bashar al-Assad. A spokesperson from the Ministry of Information stated that a new cabinet should be named in a few hours
This new cabinet will give us the first indication on Bashar al-Assads agenda. If the cabinet contains virtually the same individuals or a similar or higher number of Baath members, then that would be a very bad signs for what is to come out of tomorrows speech and on any changes to Syrian law etc. If al-Aassad on the other hand name a non-baathist Prime Minister (such as Abdullah al-Dardari) and then this might mean that he or she will be tasked with the formation of a reformist-bent government; al-Asaad may yet confound his critics and surprise his supporters.
