BEIRUT: Two leading Syrian opposition parties have agreed a road map to democracy should a popular uprising succeed in toppling President Bashar Assad, according to a copy of the document seen by Reuters.
The leading opposition group in exile, the Syrian National Council, signed the deal Friday with the largely Syrian-based National Coordination Committee, according to Moulhem Droubi, a top SNC member from Syria's Muslim Brotherhood.
The two groups have received attention from Western powers, but it is not clear how much sway they hold with the mass of protesters. The document seen by Reuters says the deal will be presented to other opposition groups at a conference next month.
The National Coordination Committee had disagreed with the SNC's calls for foreign intervention - one of several disputes that had prevented opposition groups agreeing on what a post-Assad Syria should look like.
In their pact, the two sides "reject any military intervention that harms the sovereignty or stability of the country, though Arab intervention is not considered foreign."
The groups outlined a one-year transitional period, which could be renewed once if necessary. In that period, Syria would adopt a new constitution "that ensures a parliamentary system for a democratic, pluralistic civil state."
The document also stresses that religious freedom will be guaranteed by the new constitution and condemns any signs of sectarianism or "sectarian militarisation."

The national coordinating body to the forces of the Syrian Democratic Change said in a statement Saturday that it had reached an agreement with the Syrian National Council defines the "rules of the political struggle of the democratic transition."
The agreement, signed by the President of the Syrian National Council proof pipe and a member of the national coordinating body in Syria, Haytham Manna, especially on the "rejection of any foreign military intervention affects the sovereignty and independence of the country," but he stresses that he "is not the Arab foreign intervention."
