Mohamed Mukhtar Al-Khatib, said that the withdrawal of the Communist Party from the Forces of the Declaration gathering of Freedom and Change and the National Consensus Forces was not an instant or sudden decision as some portrayed it, but rather a decision that resulted from a long-term observation and analysis of the course of events and the political situation since the outbreak of the revolution.
