Syria's opposition National Coalition on 14 September 2013 elected Ahmad Toameh as its interim Prime Minister to run the regions in the country under rebel control. A moderate Islamist and a dentist by profession, 48 year old Toameh replaces Ghassan Hitto who resigned in July 2013 since he was not able to form a cabinet due to the division among rebel factions.

The Syrian Opposition National Coalition also has a new chief, Ahmad Al-Jarba who took over in July 2013. Ahmad Toameh received 75 votes, with 10 voting against him and 12 representatives filing blank ballots.

Ahmad Al-Jarba is the new chief of the Syrian Opposition National Coalition. He took over in July 2013. He led the National Council since early July 2013 by Ahmad al-Jarba, a tribal chief and veteran dissident who fled abroad in August 2012 after being released from a second stint in the regime's jails.
