Presidential elections were held in Syria on Wednesday. The election was held in the country on Wednesday. The election results have not come yet. But the equation says incumbent President Bashar al-Assad is coming to power for the fourth time. Mass protests began in the country in 2011. The civil war has been going on in the country for almost 10 years. This is the second presidential election held there.
More than three lakh and six thousand people were killed in this decade-long civil war. There is no strong opponent against Assad in this election. Those who were, fled and took refuge in another country. And elections are not being held in areas beyond Assad’s control. That means there is no challenge in front of him. That is why it is thought that Assad is going to win this election of ‘farce’ with absolute monopoly.
After the election date was announced, Assad’s “glorious” huge poster spread like a fungus across two-thirds of the country.
