"The Syrian government is considering lifting a nearly 50-year state of emergency and moving to annul other harsh restrictions on civil liberties and political freedoms in the country, a lawmaker said yesterday. Mohammed Habash, a member of Parliament, said lawmakers discussed the state of emergency during a session last night, and President Bashar Assad will make an announcement about the issue tomorrow."
