Syria holds parliamentary elections

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

"Voters in war-torn Syria cast their ballots to elect a new parliament on Sunday, as the country grapples with international sanctions and a crumbling economy.

"Due to the coronavirus pandemic, polling staff wore masks, checked voters' temperature and ensured they stayed at a distance while lining up for the vote.

"Some 2,100 candidates were contesting for parliament's 250 seats in all the 15 multi-seat constituencies, according to official figures.

"However, any real political opposition is absent, with most candidates from Baath and its loyalist groups.

"President Bashar al-Assad is expected to claim an overwhelming victory."
