Syrian parliamentary elections in the middle of the corona. The voting process has started from 8 am on Sunday. Total 250 seats, more than 2 thousand contestants are fighting.
The capital, Damascus, smelled gunpowder before the vote. Ghouta and Idlib were shaken by the two blasts. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has been in power for 20 years. Most of the opposition parties did not register for the election. So this time too the weight of Assad is heavy. Experts think so. This is the third national election since the 2011 civil war. Like the previous year, the election was supposed to be held on April 13, but it was canceled in Corona Thaba. It was announced on March 14 that the vote would be held on May 20. But Corona is also on the rise in May. Therefore, the date of the final vote was announced on May 8.
Elections are held in Syria every 4 years. The last election was held in 2016. The National Progressive Front won 200 seats in the 250-seat Syrian parliament. Assad’s party, the Arab Socialist Bath Party, has 182 members. The remaining 50 are held by independents. However, the United Nations did not recognize the election results.
On March 3 this year, President Bashar al-Assad issued a decree directing farmers and workers to take office in 128 of the 250 seats. There will be different people in the remaining 123 seats.
