Information Minister Says Elections are Opportunity for Syrians

Zoubi said that presidential election could not be delayed, according to the constitution

Minister of Information Omran al-Zoubi said that the presidential election is a genuine opportunity for the Syrians to express their will and select their candidate for the presidency.

 

In an interview on the Syrian TV late on Sunday, Zoubi said that the majority of Syrians are willing to participate in the ballots as they want security and stability back to their homeland.

 

He said elections' day will witness a huge turnout in all provinces and delegations from many countries will oversee the event, in addition to more than 200 media outlets.

 

He said the experience of plurality in Syria is the first of its kind and no one can dictate his will on any citizen. He said the election stems from the constitution and that there is a higher judicial committee, comprising a number of judges, tasked with governing the voting process.

 

"No side can interfere in the work of the committee whether from inside or outside the country," he said.

 

On delaying the presidential election, as proposed by some opposition powers, Zoubi said that presidential election could not be delayed, according to the constitution, asserting that there is no legislative or executive authority that has the authorization to delay it.
