MAY 1ST DEADLINE FOR SYRIAN PRESIDENCY FAST APPROACHING & WHO ARE THE CANDIDATES?

 

We don’t hold out much hope for the 23 new candidates for president who have registered with the Supreme Court and we hold out zero hope for the exiled opposition traitors who don’t meet the requirement of having lived in Syria during the last 10 years.  In the case of Ghassan Hitto, formerly the chief of NACOSROF, or the National Coalition of Syrian Revolution and Opposition Forces, he hasn’t even been to Syria during the last 42 years, having escaped his own country in order to evade the draft, but wound up in Texas to set up his own Muslim Brother Barbecue Bistro and Prayer Emporium.  Only the 17th man has a chance and that’s Dr. Assad.

Here are the candidates:

  1. ‘Ali Muhammad Wannoos from Homs and 41 years old;
  2. ‘Izzaat Muhammad Wajeeh Al-Hallaaq from Damascus and 52 years old;
  3. Talee’ Saaleh Naasser, 47 years old;
  4. Sameeh Mikhaa’eel Moosaa, 51 years old and the only Christian to run;
  5. Sawsan ‘Umar Al-Haddaad, a mechanical engineer from, Samandeel,  Latakia, former Ba’ath Party member and 51 years old;
  6. Sameer Ahmad Mu’allaa from Qunaytra and 53 years old;
  7. Muhammad Firaas Yaaseen Rajjooh from Damascus and 48 years old;
  8. ‘Abdul-Salaam Yusuf Salaama from Al-‘Uthmaaniyya, Homs, and 43 years old;
  9. Maaher ‘Abdul-Haafezh Hajjaar from Aleppo;
  10. Hassan Al-Noori;
  11. Muhammad  Khaleel Halbooni, 46 years old, from Harastaa, Damascus;
  12. Muhammad Hassan Kan’aan, 50 years old from Al-Sanamayn, Der’ah;
  13. Ahmad Hassoon Al-‘Abbood, 52 years old from Al-Mayadeen, Dayr El-Zor;
  14. Khaaled ‘Abdu Al-Kuraydi, 48 years old;
  15. Bashshaar Al-Balah, 81 years old from Damascus;
  16. Ayman Shamdeen Al-‘Issaa, 47 years old from Al-Husayniyya;
  17. Dr. Bashshaar Haafezh Al-Assad, born in Damascus and is 49 years old;
  18. Ziyaad ‘Adnaan Hakawaati born in Damascus and is 59 years old;
  19. Ahmad ‘Ali Qusay’ah born in Jabaq and is 63 years old;
  20. Muhammad Muhammad Nassr Mahmoud from Al-Zhaahiriyya and is 45 years old;
  21. ‘Ali Hassan Al-Hassan from Dayr Siraas and is 49 years old;
  22. Ahmad Dhabba from North Ta’izza and is 45 years old;
  23. Mahmoud Naaji Moussaa from Palmyra and is 63 years old;
  24. Hussayn Muhammad Teejaan from Aleppo and 53 years old.

Only 3 will secure sufficient support in the People’s Assembly to run in a final election.  It is expected that Dr. Assad will receive the lion’s share of the votes.  The one Christian may be deprived of his chance because of a clause in the Constitution that requires any candidate to be “of the Islamic faith”.

We are pleased to inform our readers that, based on information in the media, not a one of the candidates has any history of pimping (Jarbaa), treason (Hijaab), desertion (Idrees), extortion (Jarbaa), fraud (Jarbaa), murder (Abu Muhammad Al-Jawlaani), war crimes (Obama, Cameron, Sarkozy, Hollande, Abdullah of KSA, Hamad and Madame Banana, Erdoghan and Merkel), membership in a prohibited organization (Hitto) or heavy breathing (Sabra).

We expect a paroxysm of violence leading up to the elections as “democratic” Western governments do their utmost to kibosh the democratic process.  Not to worry, though, the SAA has taken all that into consideration.  Expect a decent turnout of voters, especially in the areas which have been secured by the SAA and NDF.  We want to thank the terrorist organizations supported by Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the NATO cabal for preventing voters in their diminishing areas from exercising their voting rights.

It is good to see a wide range of candidates. In a healthy democracy, one would expect to see candidates from the right to the far-left of the political spectrum. Do we have any indication which political parties, if any, support these various candidates and what is their ideological orientation? To a foreigner like me they are just names, like A,B,C….

Hi, not trying to be rude or anything, as i myself am a Greek orthodox Christian of Syrian decent, but i swear in the constitution the president of Syria has to be Muslim, if Sameeh Mikhaa’eel Moosaa won, would that mean the president would be a Christian, and thus break the constitution? Even though i love Assad, Moosaa is the next best option. If anyone could enlighten me on this, as maybe Syria trying to become more democratic in allowing a Christian run. I am not in any way insulting Assad, as he truly is a friend of the Christians.… Read more »

There used to not be a clause that excluded Christians up until the “Rebellion” started. It was one of the demands of the Rebels to which Syria felt to have to obliged. That Law must be taken out of the Constitution as soon as possible We are all Syrians. Whether its a Shiite, Sunni, Christian, Jew or Atheist. By the way Ziad, I dislike how you dismiss the legitimate candidates running for office. Assad must Win in this crucial time of the War to ensure stability, safety and Victory. But the other candidates are very important for the process that… Read more »

A secular state with a constitution saying the elected head of state has to be a member of a certain religion? Funny. Of course Teheran will appreciate that.

a good article to read in regards to usa and west criticism of our up coming election. 40% of Afghans are out side of the country and their elections are more than just acceptable to the west.
just food for thought.

That exception of Christians in the Constitutions was thanks to the Rebels demands. It was not there under the old Constitution. Sooner or later after this war is over Syria will find a way to resort back to including all Religions for Presidency.

Thanks to rebel demands and Assad caving in, in a pathetic attempt to curry favour with the enemy. But he was dummied — as the sectarian Wahabbi/Salafi fanatics do not consider Alawites or even Shias to be Muslim at all, in their eyes Assad thus disqualified himself from running again.

This example fairly perfectly encapsulates the definition of Baathist political ineptitude.

Hey Mentat. I think you no longer take this site seriously and you are deliberately posting crude, low intellect comments just to get a few people foaming at the mouth. You are blatantly taking the piss and having as much ‘fun’ stirring up shit as you possibly can, before you get banned. Tell me I’m wrong?

Obviously I don’t take seriously the more ludicrous claims of ZAF provided with zero evidence, e.g, 1019 Jihadis wiped in one day, 32 nameless FSA leaders on another, the Turkish tank invasion of Latakia, ~400,000 SAA Ghost Troops hiding in their barracks awaiting a ‘serious’ war even as the country is flushed down the shitter in this one, which is a joke in bad taste. Such fabulous tales just beg to be mocked. Also, I am against Assad continuing in office — as a reviled figure for the ‘Opposition’ he has become a huge liability, a practical garantor of a… Read more »

Mentat – Thanks for responding and I will respectfully state and explain my argument and l will explain my answer. If President Assad retired or (as you so fervently wish) died, another patriot would simply take his place and the Nation of Syria would continue on. It seems you favor the ‘regime change’ spin – that Bashar Assad is merely a tyrant with no popular support and that Syria is being manipulated by just one ‘strongman.’ WRONG! Syria has in place a constitution and system of government that has and will continue to endure. Syrian people fight and Syrians will… Read more »

Don’t mistakenly assume things I have never said, e.g. that I wish Assad’s death. I only used that figure of speech to propose his sudden, final and painless exit from politics via a random coincidence which can happen to anyone. Personally I have no emotions about him. Nor do I favour ‘regime change’ operations, which translated from the imperialist lingo invariably mean a political imposition from outside usurping national sovreignty. Bashar Assad AFAICT is not even a political animal, never mind a ‘strongman’. He was plugged into a job for which he had no talent or qualification, apart from his… Read more »

Spot on, i see Putin equal with Assad, a man that loves his country and people, and he is a Christian, as Hafez Al Assad (Bacher’s father) said once ” religion is for the person, politics is for the people”, hope i got that right.

How different the Syrian elections are from ‘western’ democrazy! We must choose between just 2 ‘parties’ who are the same or lots of ‘parties’ who are all totally different and can only rule by forming a mish-mash ‘coalition’ with their political opposites. In our elections, if there is a winner, they win by 1 or 2 percent. The west can’t seem to accept a victory by a landslide margin because there are no popular politicians in western countries any more. If voting wasn’t compulsory, half the population wouldn’t even bother. The % voter turn out in Syria, even with the… Read more »
