Bashar al-Assad announced the dissolution of the so-called "General Union of Women" in Syria after nearly 50 years of its founding, one day after the overthrow of half of the leadership members of the Baath Party.

According to the SANA the state news agency, Assad canceled Law No. 33 of 1975, amended by Legislative Decree No. 3 of 1984 and its amendments, including the creation of the General Union of Women to be replaced by the Ministry of Social Affairs.

The General Women's Union was established in 1967 with Legislative Decree No. 121 to be repealed in 1975. It was replaced by a decree in 1984, headed by the mother of Bashar al-Assad, Anisa Makhlouf, who died in February last year.

It should be noted that Bashar al-Assad overthrew as he headed an emergency meeting of the leadership of the"ruling" Baath Party, on Saturday half the members of the leadership of the first row in the party in order to circumvent Western sanctions and evade them.
