The Supreme Constitutional Court spokesperson Majid Khadra said on Saturday announced the final list of presidential candidates including Maher Abdul-Hafiz Hajar, Hassan Abdullah al-Nouri and Bashar Hafez Assad only.
At a press conference, Khadra said that announcing the final list of the approved presidential candidates is considered notice for approved candidates to start their election campaign on Sunday, 11 May, 2014.
Khadra said the Supreme Constitutional Court has studied complaints submitted by Ahmad Ali Kasia, Ali Hassan al-Hassan, Bashir Mohammad al-Balah, Khaled Abdo al-Kridi, Samih Mikhail Mousa and Sami Ahmad Moalla, and concluded that their candidacy applications do not comply with the conditions stipulated by the law and the constitution.
After announcing the initial list of the approved presidential candidates, the court received six complaints by the aforementioned persons.
Candidates require written approval from at least 35 MPs to make their applications valid.
The Speaker of the People's Assembly has announced that Syrians living abroad can vote at the Syrian Embassies on 28 May and Syrians inside Syria can vote on 3 June.
